radiation. My doctor is switching me to Femara and I am concerned because I am not 100% "post-menopausal". What's the risks?
Although the Femara might throw you into full menopause, the benefits would outweigh the negative effects. When I was diagnosed with cancer, my oncologist immediately discontinued my hormone replacement meds. I didn't have breast cancer. It threw me straight into menopause at 49 years old. The good thing: it only lasted for a couple of years and wasn't unbearable. Occasionally, I will have a "hot flash", but they are rare. Many of us who have had cancer must take "maintenance' meds/treatments. The alternative is not an option, wouldn't you agree? Best wishes for continued good health.
