    Oh No

    I couldn't believe it, I thought it was normal. So when I did find out it was cancer, I acted like a child, why me, what did I do? I was mad, angry, wanted to give up, wanted to die. went through every emotion I could. After all the emotions I had, pulled my boots up and started the journey, some days are good, others not so good.

    Hormone therapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    The worst part of the hormone therapy is the soreness in my joints, especially my feet and angles, from an injury when I was much younger, walked funny for several years, and now I pay the price because arthris has set in and with the drug I take it effects your joints, and bones.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Fatigue (tiredness)

    Side Effects

    There are several other side effects, fatigue is a big one since I was go go and do everything, it has slowed me down, I take Arimidex, daily and get a shot once a month, flaxodex, since I'm stage 4 that is all they can do. I'm going for a 2nd opinion. Also the soreness in my joints, hot flashes were bad, but the doctor gave me something for that, which does help.
