I'm 29 years old and was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2012, I have it removed, had 8 months of chemotherpy and just finished 4 weeks of radiotherpy.
Now I should be happy thats its all over but am finding that its all just hit me like a tun of bricks.
I was put onto Zoladex at the start of my chemotherpy and they have now decided to keep me on it for the next 5 years and put me on Anastrozole too (which is normally for post menopausal women). They decided not to put me on Tamoxifen because I have had a blood clot in the pass year and Tamoxifen can cause them.
So you can well and truely say I'm in the menopause now. I'm getting no sleep, having night sweats, hot flushes, feeling irritabile, depressed, getting aching joints and just the feeling of utter exhaustion.
I was just wondering if anyone else has been through all the treatment and is feeling like me?
And if anyone is having Zoladex injections and taking Anastrozole and if anything has helped with the side effects?
