    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 Depression; Breast cancer

    Two weeks after the start of the intake occurred water retention, insomnia and swollen hands, stiff stiff fingers in the morning, aching feet, knees, ankles, elbows, shoulders, especially in the morning but also after breaks and on exertion, even dry skin. If the joint pain does not give, the treatment is discontinued because the side effects are not compatible with the professional activity and affect the quality of life enormously. Who knows how the maximum estrogen deprivation in the next few years would (would) affect the organism …

    Femara for Breast cancer

    Breast Cancer Diagnosis November 2003 Ablatio re. Side with simultaneous breast structure. 6 x chemo, then 3 years tamoxifen. Strong hot flashes + weight gain of 6 kg. In April 2007 then change to Femara. The hot flashes got better but I suffered from severe joint pain in the elbow joints + in the left knee. The finger joints began to crack. Strong water retention in legs + feet. Shortness of breath and inner restlessness. At times depressive moods u. Agression. Had the feeling of my personality to change totally to the detriment. Unbearable! After 13 months taking Femara, then in May after consultation with my gynecologist discontinued the funds. I’m not feeling well for a long time. The pain subsided, became weaker. Mentally, I’m great. The water retention still varies. At times a feeling of super-light legs. I am now taking off with the help of a dietician u. lost 7 kilos in 3 weeks. I am doing very well. My doctor told me it was much more important for me to reduce the weight than to take Femara’s 11 months. That would be purely for the statistics anyway. And for that I really do not have to torture myself for another 11 months.
