      From what I have read, the new protocol is for 10 years of Tamoxifen, but not for AI's. Not enough research yet to say if it's OK, given the risks to bones, etc.

      I've been told by my oncologist 10 years on anastrazole with prolia injections every 6 months to combat bone loss.

      Look into a condition called "cording" of the tendins. Like rubber bands, I had it after my mastectomy until my reconstruction surgery.

      I saw my physical therapist and she explained it all to me. It's Axillary Web Syndrome and the doctors don't know for sure why some women gets it! I could not stretch my arm all the way anymore. She pulled on several cords and they popped. She will be doing that a couple of more times and gave me a lot of stretches to do. I can stretch my arm all the way now after just one treatment. It was painful, but so worth it! I wish they could have tested the lymph nodes a different way than taking them out. It messes up your lymph system and you have to watch the affected arm for the rest of your life that you don't get any infections.
