Hi Thomas - I had FEC chemo in 2003, 25 rads, 2 months of tamoxifen, then 4 yrs on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arimidex</span>
. I have been having severe hip, foot and hand pain. DEXA bone density scan showed significant bone loss since starting hormonal therapy. My GP suggested I stop arimidex
for 4 weeks to see if the pain diminished, which it has. He is now referring me to an Oncologist for evaluation and change of hormonals, perhaps Femara.
However, in the last month I have been very nauseous, no appetite, and lost 10 lbs.
