I have been on Letrozole since Dec 2012. Main side effects for me have been the hot flushes. Worse than on Tamoxefin otherwise not bad at all.
I found a small lump two weeks ago. Had my annual mammogram today and radiographer is sending me for ultra sound. It has been nearly six years since I had BC 2007. so fingers crossed for me.
Hi Jood, So relieved to find your Post, I'm currently having radium therapy which I finish next Monday. Then in October I go onto Letrozole and yours' is the first positive post I've seen. I'm having a bone scan after I finish this, and then wait to start the treatment which I'll be on for 5 years. I am so pleased you've had a positive response to the treatment and hope I do too. Thanks for posting
Well done Jood for positive comment. I also am taking Letrazole 2.5 mgs daily for the last four years and have no real side effects apart from some achy joints ( this could be age related also ) lol. I am grateful for this drug and am happy to try anything that may prevent this awful disease recurring ........ been there 4 times !!!! So chin up everyone and soldier on xx
I've been on Letrozole for two years and I share that experience. Yes my skin has aged a bit faster I think, no hair thinning. I had a few aches and pains in the firsxt few months, but I've made a point of trying to be a bit healthier all round (without becoming fanatical) and I'm another happy camper. I think its true that those of us who are chugging along happily tend not to visit the forums so often, and its good to reassure folks that some of us are lucky enough not to suffer too many side effects. Everyone is different and will have different reactions.
