Re: Supplements

It’s also worth considering something like yoga or Pilates as that really helps with aches and pains if you don’t do something like this already. I do yoga - stretching and doing specific weight bearing exercises is really beneficial x

Hi vic

 

I consulted a medical herbalist at The Haven, so she was very experienced in all aspects of breast cancer (and she’d been through it herself). She recommended a specific brand of omega 3, taken from the algae the fish eat rather than from the fish so more effective in her opinion, from a firm called Nuique. I’ve just started taking it for disabling joint and muscle pain so it’s very early days (I’m also having a break from the anastrozole to get rid of the joint pain and then restarting it with the original brand I had which caused me no problems - my oncology nurse said several of her patients had found changing brands solved things). I considered glucosamine and turmeric but I think 2 things at a time and see if either helps, then try something else...
