I was diagnosed with breast cancer hr positive type 111 A last year and I did have two surgeries one lumpy and had my lymphnods removed and was recovering from my surgery in January of last year and in Febuary to May I had chemo and from June to August I had radiation therapy! After that I was tired of all the chemicals that was inside of me! Than my chemo doctor told me that if I started to take ANNASTROZOLE! She told me that my cancer had decreased from chemo and radiation therapy! Than she told me that the hormone pill would do the same thing as the chemo therapy ! But when I got on it! It made me feel crippled because it cause's really bad stiff joints in the body! Than it also caused high cholestrol and it also gave me really bad hot flashes too! So I quit taking it! And since than I feel like my oldest self again!View Thread
