    Have you discussed these concerns with your doctor(s) as that is where I would start? Congrats on being cancer free for 8 years.

      I have been on and off these for almost four years and decided to stop. The pain and fatigue plus anxiety and depression were too much for me to handle. I live alone and there were days I couldn't get off the couch. I also have severe short term memory loss with them as well. Last year I turned in the dnis and snapped my tibia in half. Pre hormone therapy I worked out four days a week and was very fit! I'm a mess right now and even after stopping for two months I still haven't gotten better!

      Liz. That is what I am hearing. I am so sorry for you and your family. I worry now that I have gone off these meds earlier than five years but living alone I have little choice if I break s hip or something I could not live in my house with the steps and would have to go to a rehab and who would take care of my best buddy ( doggie) ? This is causing such depression as well ugh. The surgery and radiation were walks in the park compared to that tiny pill!

      Yes, they are an Estrogen blocker but there are some body parts fat in particular that produce Estrogen and if your tumor was Er+ then something was producing it. I had a complete hysterectomy with ovary removal in '96 but when diagnosed in '13...
