You are welcome .If only we had a crystal ball !! It's a difficult decision for sure - good luck .Maybe discuss the alternatives too ?
Thank you so much fun for this link! I am going through a very difficult and complicated decision and a table like this is extremely helpful. Cheers from Canada 🇨🇦 😘
https://breast.predict.nhs.uk/predict_v1.2.html. This tool gives you some idea of the gain in your particular circumstances although it's still not a precise predictor of what will actually happen .
Braveface sorry you are having such a miserable time - have you spoken to
your doctors re the alternatives to Anastrozole ( maybe Tamoxifen would treat you more kindly ?) also have you asked about the percentage gain you are getting from taking the hormone medication .Some have only a small gain from taking the meds for others it's much more significant .
I am just 2 years into a 5-year Anastrazole plan. Every 3 days or so I feel like I have the flu - achy, no energy, chills (unless I am having a hot flash/flush). Truthfully, I stay in bed most of the day on those bad days. I am 64, I eat a healthy diet, my weight is fine, and I exercise by walking and stretching when I am feeling well enough. I have never felt so useless in my life!
Has anyone out there endured and then come off a 5-year Anastrazole experience? If so, did you ever feel normal again and how long did it take to feel better? I am really wondering if taking this med. is worth the anguish.
