I have thinning, dry hair, sagging skin, joint pain, and back pain. I can tolerate most of these if I feel that the pain will subside and I will regain some of my hair and skin health.
I assume that you are on Anastrozole for cancer survival reasons? The drug's main purpose is to supress estrogen in women (supposedly also helping to suppress the cancer cells). The symptoms you mentioned are all the result of taking this drug. Are you saying you are no longer taking this drug? I would definitely take daily packets of Knox gelatin--proven to strengthen hair and skin, and also ask about being put on a low dose ERT (estrogen replacement therapy). To me, it's about quality of life. I'm not interested in beating the disease if I gotta be miserable, know what I mean? Keep us posted. And blessings upon you. ~~millison
