    Femara for Metastasis; Breast cancer

    The treatment began 19 months ago with Bondronat and Femara. Since I had hardly any side effects. Half a year later, new metastases were found Femara was discontinued and I got Faslodex. From then on I felt worse and worse. It started with feebleness, fatigue, pain in the joints. Then later numbness in the hands and feet and very severe pain. I have been wearing a pain patch since February of this year and am also taking Temgesic. On some days, I feel like dazed by another star, and can not leave the house alone. My quality of life has suffered as a result. New metastases were found again at the last examination. And I wonder, how can that be. But that’s exactly what Bondronat and Faslodex are supposed to do. Have I been treated with the wrong drug in the past few months? The bad thing is, I’m staying on the track !!

    Femara for Fatigue; Pain (joint)

    At initial intake dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue, sleep disturbances and the usual hot flashes at night, similar to Arimidex, but not so pronounced. Also, the time until you get used to the drug a little shorter namely about 1 week, then the side effects are lower. In Arimidex, the habituation phase took just under 3 weeks, the side effects were more pronounced. Whether Femara has a value, you can not say yet, but the intake period is too short. Two years ago, I started using tamoxifen, after six months of increasing tumor markers, then Arimidex got better after three months. After another 6 months again massively increasing tumor markers. Now Femara.

    Femara for Pain (acute)

    I have been taking the hormone preparation FEMARA for a year now. The joint and muscle pain increase more and more from day to day. Constant headaches, diarrhea, nausea, hot flashes, then often I start to feel cold. I feel exhausted and broken. was sick for 3 weeks now. My doctor says, but I should take the drug despite all the side effects. Sometimes I think I stop, but then I feel remorse again and I keep on.

    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!

    Femara for Breast cancer

    For the first six months, except for dry mucous membranes, hot flushes, and sometimes depressive states, I tolerated letrozole relatively well. Meanwhile, I have discomfort with the bones, in knee and hip joints and feet and especially the stiffness in the back, stooping is hardly possible, bother me. Tiredness and slackness as well as changes in the hair structure have also been added. The best is for cycling, which unfortunately is currently possible bad weather conditions. I am not sure if I can continue to participate in sports (currently are holidays).

    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.
