I'm in the same boat right now. I'm at the end of my 5 years on tomaxifen. My labs say I'm NOT in menopause. So, theyhave recommended I take zoledex shots monthly to put me in menopause. After 3 shots I am suppose to start the letrozole. I could not tell where I was. I had only 2 periods during and after chemo. I'm contemplating just doing the ovary removal because I have no idea how long it would be for me to reach natural menopause. (I could be taking this shot for many years) So far I have had 3 shots. I had a bleed after the 1st one so, now my ob/gyn wants to do an endometrial biopsy since that was unusual. All of the sudden my teeth are becoming a problem. Something about resorption. Decaying from the outside-in. I spent 4 1/2 hours at the endodontist and oncologist on Friday. More time than at the doctor's office I work at.
I'm so glad we have something to go to after tomaxifen, but I don't like the resources it requires to progress.
This really means nothing in comparison to our dear Connie. She was an angel here for us. Connie, may you fly on Eagle's wings.
Much love, Julie Johnson (jules)
