Hi. I've just become cancer free thru a needle biopsy..was 6mm and a biopsy on my lymphs were all clear. Within the next week I'm to go for a radiation consultation. That does not worry me to much. I also will be seeing someone on the Hormone therapy treatment. The one I will be on is called arimidex. I don't know if I'm going to take this with all the side effects I read. I'd like to just do the radiation. I don't want to deal with all the side effects at age 62.. I'm enjoying life as is. Then if I go on this for five years with all the side effects I'll be 67 . Were you on this? How was it for you.............View Thread
