HELP! I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017 due to high estrogen levels. Had radiotherapy and was taking tamoxifen which didn't suit me. Had a full hysterectomy last may 2018. Went back on tamoxifen but suffered with anxiety and depression. My oncologist took me off tamoxifen for 6 weeks. Saw him again last week and he now wants me to start taking Letrezole but have heard they are not nice to be on and side effects are bad. The question i'm asking is, surely if i've had a hysterectomy and have little estrogen in my body, surely the chances of me getting breast cancer back is not high? Please help as i really don't want to take these but need to find out if i really NEED to be taking letrezole if my estrogen level is low after the hysterectomy? thanks

I had breast cancer last year caused by too much oestrogen! Before this happened, I had been on the progesterone only pill for about 10 years and I felt great as I’ve always felt that I lacked the progesterone hormone. This year I’ve had a hysterectomy as my hormones were still coming through with the tamoxifen and zolidex. I had a full hysterectomy and cannot go on HRT because I cannot have any oestrogen in my body. My anxiety has gone through the roof ! I would really like to know if I can have a progesterone hormone in my body as I’m sure that benefits people after menopause? Is there a progesterone only tablet I can take to settle my symptoms down ?
