I've been on Aromasin for almost 2 years now with very few side effects, thankfully. My understanding is that it is a "steroidal" aromatase inhibitor and that it blocks the turning of testosterone and body fat into the bad type of estrogen.....thus reducing estrogen in our bodies. It does so in a more permanent way than femara, and other aromatase inhibitors. I hope so much that you have good success with it. I have read very good things about this drug and my Onc likes all the studies.
Blessings and hugs ~ Joany
Haven't talked to you in a couple weeks. Glad to see you post and that the infection is gone and the pain the arm is nearly gone. Hope the new drugs work for you with little or no side effects.
Joany's post looks very positive about this drug. Hang in their sweetie. God Bless you.
I'll try to call again one of these evenings on my drive home.
