To Lievre on vaginal and “down there” itching. My rt breast removed and 11 nodes 12/12/14. Just got relief from itching 2 mo ago by going to a urologist. I’m not a detail person, stayed on Anastrozole for 2 years, then got on a chat room and realized my horrid bone and muscle aches were side effects. Changed to tomaxafen for a couple of weeks, quit everything for a year. I’m a vital, single, 71 year old with a 94 year old mother. Had 4 months of chemo, exhausted, but not one day of nausea due to great pharmacists. In four years have lived in 3 states due to family needs, 3 different oncologists. Back to original oncologist, special doctor, he asked that I try Anastrozole again. No depression, rare hot flashes, weird little headaches and sore throats, insomnia, wonderful crying, very cathartic. My daughter said she had changed her mind, forget quality of life, stay on pill; that said, I am willing to do 8 more years if suggested. To me Weight loss of my 50 xtra lbs., great eating habits and 10,000 steps per day with my fit bit, I will simply enjoy the excuse of exhaustion and sitting many x per hour. I walk with a beach buggy because it is the height of a grocery basket and I can carry groceries, etc. I don’t have a balance problem, have 3 problem discs, so just like having a bit of support. Urologist gave me the RX for vaginal pills 2, then another dose of 2, did not use 3rd dose. Ointment Clotrimazole, Betamethazone and Dipropionate, use when needed. No itching, heaven. Have best hair ever, to my waist, loved being bald, can go either way... feel soooo sorry for working sufferers because of exhaustion.
