      Shoulder surgery, left knee replacement, left carpal tunnel surgery, fractured scaphoid, osteoporosis, fractured vertebrae in spine, and waiting for results of a recent MRI of my right knee to determine if surgery is the option or just a cortisone shot.

      MRI of the spine is scheduled for 10/24.

      But, my mantra is I don't have cancer anymore and don't want a recurrence so I will try to cope with the pains, surgeries, etc. from Arimidex. My surgeon and oncologist agree that I should continue to taking it and I had my mastectomy in 2008. I was stage III A and don't want it ever again.

      Judytjab, my oncologist at Sloan said they don't do that test. I am going to follow up with another place, though.

      I've been anastrozole for the past 3+ years and have minimal side effects. I have some joint pain (just first thing in the morning) and have a herniated neck disc that sometimes affects the nerve leading to my left shoulder, but I can't say for sure those have been caused by the medication - and neither can my oncologist. Coincidences? What are your calcium and vitamin D levels? The medication works on the bones so we all need extra for both of those.
