... diagnosed with atypical femur fractions. I also take letrozole daily for metastatic breast cancer. Would these drugs work together? Would the side effects be as severe?
Xgeva is used to prevent bone fractures and other skeletal conditions in people with tumors that have spread to the bone. It helps keep the bones stronger. I too have stage lV breast cancer in my bones and lymph nodes. I have broken my clavicle twice before xgeva. I have taken it now for 2 years and I have been doing well. Went from 1 shot in the arm monthly to once every 3 months. I take it with ibrance and Faslodex along with vitamin D and calcium/magnesium/zinc supplement. I only have minor hot flashes and injection sight soreness for a day but no other side effects. Each person is different so I can only speak for myself. Good luck and hope it works as well for you as it does for me.
