I can only speak of my experience. The oncologist told me to start taking Letrozole straight away while i was waiting for an appointment with the rads doctor. I'm 5 weeks into Letrozole and my rads starts 27th March. I recall leaving the onco appointment a little confused as he had prescribed 3 lots of meds and i couldn't remember which one to start first but fortunately he had written instructions on the prescription.
You are right to wait until Monday for clarity. A few days won't make any difference.
Best wishes xx
Hi Andi, can only offer what I’ve done.
I was initially told I’d start 6 weeks after surgery when radiotherapy was expected to start.
However I met the medical oncology team 3 weeks after surgery and was given Letrozole at that appointment. I actually didn’t start taking them until 5 days later as I had a short break planned and didn’t want to take them while away in case I had immediate side effects!
Can’t say I’ve noticed much difference taking them so far, as I still seem to be recovering from the effects of chemo, and have continued with Herceptin and Pertuzumab 3 weekly, so don’t know what’s attributed to what!
I’m sure it won’t make any difference waiting until Monday to speak to your oncology team for them to confirm what they said to you.
Have a a good weekend xx
