Comment from: Lucy Russo, 55-64 on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: July 10

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006. I am now 58 yrs old,but feel older since being on femara since 3/07. But if taking this med will help assure no reaccurance than i would rather deal with some of the side effects. My feet,back,legs,have been really aching and sore. I have been very tired. I also gained weight,which i tend to have that problem anyway. But I'm here to tell you that you can lose weight taking Femara. I thought i wouldn't be able to but that is not true. I have lost weight since June 09 and still losing. That was part of my depression, having the weight gain,which plays alot on my self esteem. So I will continue to take Femara,because the side effects out weigh the chances of cancer re-accuring.

I am so excited my Dr.said to quit taking femara for 1 month-then to try aromasin instead.Femara caused over 15 hot flashes per 24 hours-vitamins B6+E didn't help.It also gives me severe back,hip+leg pain.I am only 45 but feel 90.To help control weight gain I do Leslie Sansone exercise videos.This also gives an overall sense of well being.Exercise helps with depression and fatigue.Hopefully aromasin will agree with me better.Good luck to everyone and hang in there.
