    Femara for Breast cancer

    After the third breast surgery and removal of the right breast, I was prescribed FEMARA. I take this medicine now half a year. After a short time of taking already significant increase in body weight. Listlessness, depression, memory failure, skin rash pimples. Listlessness in sex life. The quality of life has diminished considerably. Now, after talking to my gynecologist and contacting an oncologist, try to get another solution or medicine. In the last five years of my breast cancer, I took tamoxifen and had virtually no side effects. 28/05/2011

    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

    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.

Unfortunately, the pill makes me even sicker and 30 years older. heat waves tsunamis, eye problems, bone problems Athrose and rheumatism, headache, stomach intestinal problems, weight gain. Drying of the mucous membranes, urinary problems, heart racing harrausfall and much more. my brain (gedächnis) does not play anymore. Also, several attempts have been made to get blood samples from me which unfortunately was very painful for me and without success.
