Not heard of Arimidex or a course of 11years
Was there no alternative?
Glad you are out of it.
Can't wait to come off Letrozole in 3 yrs
Hi everyone, this forum was a lifeline to me 12 years ago when I found that I had multifocal bc.
I have been on Arimidex for 11 years, my oncologist suggested that I come off it after 10 but I was too frightened even though I was starting to suffer real side effects of the meds. One of those effects was a total lack of desire in anything sexual, I also had my ovaries removed so that didnt help with the dryness that I suffered. I had virtually no interets in sex and really wanted to be on my own.
I have gone through all the emotions of that, feeling guilty, jealous of others who seem to be in a 'happy' sexual relationship, angry, I convinced myself that not haviing sex maybe was just how it was, my partner and I just managed to struggle through this but I dont know how.
Three weeks ago I missed my Arimidex for the first time ever, I had run out and due to this I slowly thought about coming off it it has now been over three weeks.
I just wanted to mention to others that for the first time in forever I have started to get some feelings back with regard to sex, its like a cloud is slowly lifting, Im hoping it will get even better. x
