    Side Effects (clicking fingers, joint discomfort): I had a partial mastectomy in October of 2011. It seems that my breast cancer was estrogen related. Since my mastectomy, I have been taking Arimidex as the treatment and will be for the next 5 years. I would like to know about the breast cancer stories and experiences of those taking Arimidex.

      Hi, KMVW How are you?? This is my first time contacting you. I would like to respond to your arimidex issue. I was diagnosed last Sept 2011..Completed 8 chemo/33 radiation, ending in May of this year. I have at least 11 soaking wet..hot flashes, or whatever.daily.. .I have had these since age 53. I feel ,arimidex has made them worse, and I too, have to be on it for five years.
      I would like to know other women out there that are having this problem..

    I recently had a simple masectomy. Since my tumor was less than 3 centimeters and since no lymph nodes were affected, chemo was not selected by my oncologist for treatment. I have been put on the drug Arimidex for 5 years. I have had no side effects from this drug. I would like to hear from other women who are taking Arimidex or did take Arimidex. How long did you take it? Have your check-ups been favorable with it? What was YOUR breast cancer experience that led you to Arimidex? Thanks so much!

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Targeted therapy): I am taking Arimidex for 5 years. I am approaching my second completed year of the drug. I find that it does impede my mobility to a small degree--stiffness upon standing, easier to strain tendons etc.
