Hi Helen 1971,
Emily here from Someone Like Me at Breast Cancer Care.
I wanted to let you know that Breast Cancer Care has telephone volunteers who have been in a similar position to you - and they certainly have some tips, suggestions and success stories!
If you'd like to speak any of them, then feel free to send us your contact details through this link and we'll get in touch to arrange for a volunteer to call you.
I hope this helps
I've got the same problem but with a different hormone drug - Letrozole. Like you, I've put on over a stone since starting on chemo. The chemo finished last November then I had surgery and radiotherapy. Once that was over, they started me on the hormones and the weight is really piling on now. My oncologist is quite dismissive about it but it's really upsetting me. I've read (somewhere on this site) that the 5.2 diet works so I'm going to give that a go. Eat normally for 5 days and eat just 500 calories per day for 2 non-consecutive days. Like you, I'm just not willing to accept that it's 'normal' to put on weight - it's making me very; very unhappy.
So maybe this isn't the help you're looking for Helen, but you're not alone. I know just how you're feeling!!
