Was treated for BC 2015, lumpectomy, radiation, arimidex. Have used arimidex, aromasin and tamoxifin, no difference in side effects. Since diagnosis, I have gained 40 pounds, have no energy and hurt all over. I know my oncologist is recommending a minimum of 5 years on the arimidex, but I am seriously considering stopping after 4 years. I thought I could make it but it just seems to get worse every day. I have tried dieting, it makes no difference if I eat salads or candy bars, the weight won't budge. As for getting more exercise, it's all I can do to walk across the parking lot at work. Thank goodness I have a sit down job. None of the doctors seem to understand, it's always you need to exercise more or have you tried the keto diet. It's almost like they are completely disconnected, giving me the text book solution. Well it doesn't work. I am tired of not living my life. I was always active until this. Anybody have any ideas? PS- I have just turned 60. I always knew I would get old, I just didn't realize it would happen overnite.
