Thinking about stopping letrozole

Hi folks


i was an active member here in 2016.  Had stage 1 grade 1 primary BC.  Two lumps, so classed as “multi-focal”.  Have been on Letrazole for 2 and half years.  Frankly I don’t think I can take much more.  List of SE are endless.  I can hardly walk.  Now had a different brand and my

thumb on right hand given up.  Dryness in personal areas, and relationships are now non existent.  I feel like crying tonight.  I exercise like an athlete. Is it worth it?

Hi Patriciamay,

Good to see you again, even if you’d rather not be here, of course. 

Sorry to hear about the letrazole. I must admit, I didn’t switch to AIs as tamox is ok with me & tbh, I didn’t like the sound of it, especially as I’d had an early bc diagnosis. When I looked into it, for me, there wasn’t much difference in clinical outcomes, so I decided if it’s not broke then don’t fix it. 

As ever, these decisions aren’t easy as the ‘what ifs’ play on the mind. What does Predict say? 

Is tamox an option?

As ever, you’ll make the best decision for you.
