The oophorectomy itself was a fairly easy procedure, it's just the hot flushes, night sweats and anxiety I'm struggling with. It's to get rid of oestrogen x
Sadly, I'm a little older than 34!! But have been on letrozole for about 10 months, so I can tell you what I experience.
The main thing does seem to be stiff and achy joints. I take cod liver oil and a calcium tablet.
If you feel nauseous at all, take the tablet in the evening. This tends to wear off after a while.
Hot flushes seem to be minimal.
You probably won't feel anything at all for about 6 weeks. And hopefully for you, side effects will be manageable.
Hope this helps xx
Just wondered if there were any other youngsters out there on letrozole? I'm only just 34 with lymph and bone mets. I had an oophorectomy 11 days ago and yesterday I took my first letrozole. I'm very frightened of the side effects I've read about and I just wondered if there was anyone else in their 30s on it who could offer me some advice/reality/reassurance.
