I had a Dexa scan today, it was very gentle and not invasive. The lady was really pleasant, so hopefully that will be ok for you too!
Been on Letrozole for two years now. Stomach pains are much better now I take it with my evening meal. Have the unexpected urgent loo run sometimes, but have to keep off chilli and nduja, also sweet corn. 🤣. Have found that my SEs are better on Teva brand. Cipla brand just cripples me with joint pains. X
I too am on Letrozole. I get stomach pain and insommnia and all the other side effects. Hopefully these side effects don't last too long.
Just a quick message to say sorry to read you're having a tough time. It is so hard when we have a down day not to let it spiral out of control. Don't be too hard on yourself ..Sending you love and hugs to help you through the challenging times.
I can do this x
great isn’t it. I finished rads about 10 days ago and apart from itchy skin have been ok.
Dont worry about the graphic detailas i Ila’s I know what you mean. It can only be the tablets as my reflux etc was ok and under control before them.
yes insomnia is horrible and the hot weather hasn’t helped especially with the hot flushes. Oh the joys of being a woman who has had breast cancer
Certainly don’t worry about having a whinge. That’s what this forum is for along with being educational. Down days are normal
Good luck x
great isn’t it!?!?
yes insomnia is also on the list. Glad to report that the joint pains have lessened but then I had them anyway so perhaps not much change. That’s what this forum is for. To off load and to get advice so don’t apologise. I finished rads about 10 days ago. No SE,s from that apart from itchy skin and stabbing pains in the boob which are tolerable.
Am a nurse so don’t worry about the graphic description lol!
Think I will be lucky to make it to 5 years on these tablets but will see when I get back to work
Good luck x
Hi Bellas Mum
I thought I was getting off lightly with SE but they seem to have hit me all at once. I have Dexa scan next week and visit to gynaecologist too so more to worry about.
Hi Bellas Mum
I am experiencing similar symptoms to you. I too have been on Omeprazole for a while but thought I'd give it a rest ( haven't taken it for about 4 months) but resorted to taking it again today. I am also experiencing a bloating feeling too as tend to be constipated at times.
Just wondered if you were experiencing this too or anyone else is? I've been on Letrozole since February.
Does anyone else have acid type stomach pains with Letrozole?
I take Omeprazole anyway for GERD and have found recently that I have been having a feeling in my stomach like the GERD symptoms but no reflux. Have been taking Letrozole with food in the evening and this has helped with the other SE,s apart from the hot flushes.
