    Targeted therapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Started Arimedex on 12/26/2016. So far no side effects. 08/08/2017 update ... for the last 6 months, it's hard to get up and go. Leg ankle and foot pain. Once moving, it's better. Debating if I should try a different Med or suck it up for the next 5 years
