My wife has lobular cancer in both breasts. Tests after surgery were negative but the oncologist is doing genetic testing to see if chemo is also advised. If the tests are negative he has recommended femara. She is 70 and in good health otherwise but probably susceptible to osteoporosis due to ethnicity, age, and genetics. He talked about taking something to prevent bone loss but not sure what that was. It will be another two months until she takes either drug so there is time to research and consider the options.
I did not think that femara was approved for use 7 years ago.
