Hi, I live in Burnaby, 5 minutes drive to Vancouver.

A heat wave here. Though both Herceptin and Purjeta which I am on would not cause the so-called photo-sensitivity reaction, I am hiding myself from the sun. 😀

Hi there 

This is really helpful. Thank you.

Much better sleep last night and side effects seem to have subsided!

Determined to be more active today as been lying around far too much!

Where do you live in Canada? I have a daughter who is currently in Vancouver. She is loving it!

Thanks once again.

Fulvestrant side effects

Hi there 

I have just started treatment for SBC in bones and liver. 

Part of my treatment is monthly injections of fulvestrant. Had my first one on tuesday afternoon and feel really rough - bone aches, sweats etc Struggled to sleep last night and still feeling rubbish this morning. 

Has anyone else had experience of this and if yes how long did it last - ie do you get the same reaction after every monthly injection? 

Thanks for your help. 

Hope you are all doing well with your treatments.
