    I’m sorry for putting this on your wall but I don’t know where to respond to you. I was taking what you are and I couldn’t deal with the bone and joint pain. And now what good does it really do?

      No, I actually thought it was only given pre menopause, the AI’s are generally thought to be better post menopause, I believe

      That’s what I thought but the oncologist said Tamoxifen is for both. It might not work as effective but it’s better than taking nothing.

    I took one kind and had horrible joint and bone pain. I can’t remember the name but I think it’s generic of what your taking. I have a new kind to try Tamoxifen. I can’t start taking it until the pain stops from the last one. It’s scary not taking any right now.

      @Sandy. You ask a lot of questions that I have no answers. Here's what I know. At age 60, I had Stage III BC in my left breast in a duct. I had 7 chemo infusions covering 14 weeks. I cancelled the 8th infusion. After chemo, a lumpectomy, followed by radiation. I saw my surgeon annually for a mammograms then MRIs. My family & I hated my Dr. so I quit going as soon as I could. My surgeon was great so I stayed with her. My cardiologist found my MBC after an ablation. Things have changed so much since '06. I'm 73 with a-fib. Hope this helps. I take each day as it comes. My BC was a bump in the road & I drove on. This trip is a little more difficult, but I've last 3 years.

      Diane2019, over a period of 2 1/2 years, I tried every oral AI then faslodex injections. Due to side effects (including internal bleeding), I said enough. Unsure about the BMI part of the discussion. My # is 22.
