Re: Is letrozole a kind of Chemotherapy drug?

Hi meash67mosh sounds like youve been trough the mill! i got off lightly so far compared to you. Yes I had lymph node involvement and had 34 lymph nodes removed and foud only one of them was infected. I still get stiff soreness/tightness and have a lot of numbness. have to continue doing stretching exercises.havnt got full strenth bak in my arm either . However after my WLE I opted not to have any chemo. this was a joint decision with the oncologist. been on letrozole since feb but came off it lately as was feeling so tired and low mood. so presently having a break but going back to discuss if I should go back on it or try something different. I have been off it a couple of weeks now the first week I came ff it I felt pretty good however I have started getting really tired again. Im sleeping okish but do sometimes have hot sweats during the night. Are you taking any tablets? how are you feeling. Im back at work full time now and find it difficult. Do you work? Hoping you are well and feeeling ok speak soon

Hi Corina

I don’t know if it is a type of chemo ask the Breast care nurses to help you with that.

How are you now? I remember when we first came on this site last December!! We have both come a long way since then. I have had two surgeries 18 weeks of chemo and 20 sessions of radiotherapy. Do you remember when we had been told that we had lymph node involvement and was very scared. Please let me know how you are getting on as I feel we have had similar BC and time scales. Take very good care of yourself xxx

Hi Corrina

 

I think you you may find it helpful to contact our nurses to answer this question, either through the Ask Our Nurses area of the Forum or perhaps using the free Helpline, 0808 800 6000.

Is letrozole a kind of Chemotherapy drug?

I read somewhere that Letrozole was a king of Chemotherapy drug and am wandering if thats true?
