This is my first post to Boards. I never thought my first post would be to this forum.
My mam was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast cancer in June. She never showed any sign or symptom of being ill. It was caught by chance. I am heartbroken and devastated for her. She is doing so well and keeping so positive and I'm very proud of her. You would not think to look at her that there is anything wrong. But she really only has started treatment this week - no chemo, just hormone treatment.
I am wondering would anyone have any advice/stories on the hormone treatment she has started taking. No side effects have kicked in as yet. The drug is called Letrozole. I have looked it up online and was shocked to read people's reviews of the drug. They are all horror stories, with many people saying they couldn't cope on it and came off it as quality of life was more important than dealing with these awful side effects.
I couldn't find one positive review of this drug. I suppose I am hoping that people who have posted online are people that are struggling on it, but that there are many more who are fine on it so don't need to go online out of desperation!!
I'd love to hear from anyone who has gone through it or is going through it.
Thanks for reading!
