      Anastrozole has nothing to do with stage or bone cancer. It is an aromatase inhibitor meaning that it reduces the estrogen in your body. If your breast cancer was estrogen positive that means that estrogen could trigger a recurrence of breast cancer. The anastrozole reduces the risk of recurrence for estogen positive cancers.

      If there are any little rogue cancer cells left undetected in your body, that Anastrozole is suppressing the estrogen that it needs to grow and prosper. Sorry that you are experiencing SEs. xoxoxo

      Good luck. I had a lot of pain on that and switched to Aromasin. Still have pain, but not as bad. We need to stick it out like the other ladies said. It may keep a recurrence from happening. I hate these meds, but gate cancer worse. Hang in there!

    2 treatments shy of the end. I have had 31, can't wait to finish. I was very concern due to the fact that I've implants, so far the radiation has not affected it, its been more of a sunburn a little more in some areas were it got dark and begining to peel, all in all not bad.
