    Femara for Breast cancer

    Initially, the side effects began with palpitations and sweats that have decreased significantly after a few weeks. On the other hand, the bones, joints and muscles are very fierce. Increases in liver function, fatigue, depressed mood, massive weight gain. Sleep through the night – under Femara – was once again, except for the urge to urinate one again and again out of bed. And under the daily morning stiffness of the joints, the accumulation of water in my hands and legs, I have the impression that Femara is aging at a tempo pace and makes one worry of waking up in the morning. The quality of life drops enormously!

    Bone and joint pain, hot flashes, occasionally nausea. The hair has become a little thinner. The Femara has been applied immediately after the chemo and has successfully continued the good started path. The partial remision is continued by the capture of Femara.

Recurrent stubborn joint inflammation (currently elbow), thin, brittle hair; decreasing athletic efficiency! Hot flashes (approx. 5-20 x / day)

    Femara for Breast cancer

    I have reported here as a guest a few weeks ago about side effects of Femara. Initial side effects such as palpitations and massive sweats were massive, but after a short time they have subsided. At that time I did not know that this was just the beginning of further problems. As often read here, massive bone and joint pain, fatigue, and nausea came along, with a beginning of weight gaining and bloating without any of it. I have the experience that deny the side effects. If some become weaker or disappear, others come or reinforce themselves. The quality of life sinks in parts to zero. The fear of cancer and the hope that the side effects are bearable and stop, let me first go on.

    2009 breast surgery, after irradiation tamoxifen intake. Then 2x pneumonia and pulmonary embolism. 2010 intake of Femara. Then it started right. Terrible joint and bone problems. Came up after prolonged sitting only in severe pain. It seemed like an old woman. (61 y.) I still tried to walk 1/2 hour every day. Strong mood swings were added. The quality of life was severely impaired. Then I stopped 2 weeks with Femara. And behold, the complaints were not so strong. But I was unsure, what should I do. By chance, a friend (also a cancer patient) has given me the advice to take Femara in the evening. I then took Calcium Plus Vitamin D3 in the morning and Femara and Calcium Plus Vitamin D3 in the evening. I can only say for myself, it helped me. The complaints are not so strong anymore. I can live with that. Although I still have hot flashes, but the joint u. Bone discomfort is not so strong and the mood swings have become less. I hope it gets better.
