Ok, so I finished my 5 years of tamoxifen in December and then had a total hysterectomy to take care of the estrogen issue. I asked my onc about going on additional meds since I was now in menopause. She put me on Femara. I've since read that Femara is indicated as a first-line defense and for metastatic breast cancer. Of course, I am neither. Now I'm wondering why she put me on this instead of arimidex? Any one have any ideas? I never gained weight on tamoxifen, but have gained with the Femara, so I'm not loving it....lol...
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Do not go gentle into that goodnight,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
