      My Breast Cancer had already spread to the lymph nodes. My radiation went from my ear to mid torso, including under arm, and sternum to spine on right side.

      My gut reaction is that you need more calcium. Talk with your doc, and if you haven't already done this, ask for a bone density test. I am now getting Xgeva shots monthly, and take calcium with D3 twice a day. When I forget to take the supplemental calcium, my teeth start powdering off and chipping. Best wishes, and hope this helps. :)

      I have breast cancer (3 years out), no chemo, but did 33 rounds of radiation. I am also on Anastrozole (generic Arimidex) but have not have the dental problems. Are you being checked for bone density? I've had 2 bone density tests since starting my AI, and was recommended to also take a Calcium/vitaminD pill to help combat the loss of the estrogen (which the AI is supposed to suppress) which is a bone strengthener. I would speak with your oncologist about this.
