    Hormone therapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    While waiting to see if I would have to have chemo before my sessions of radiation, the oncologist decided to put me on the hormone therapy called Femara. Now I have to take a bone density test to see if I am going to have osteoporosus as a side effect of Femara.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
