    Side Effects (Allergic reaction): I had more side effects than the usual ones. The side effects I had required that I consult my physician. The oncologist did not believe me. This experience shook my confidence to continue. She give me another AI drug which I have not taken. I am terrified of the pain I will have to endure. I am already an unhealthy person.
