I'm going to be starting letrozole once I see oncologist in 2 weeks side effects sound awful and giving me anxiety thinking about it.
Got away with not having chemo but chemo seems better at least it's for a period of time and recover but hormone tablets to think 5 to 10 years it's a hell of a long time.
What are people doing to help them through side effects pls .
I am so sorry to read you’re feeling anxious.
I have been on Letrozole for a year now. I am 47. The side effects have varied, it’s not been amazing but things have settled and it has offered me so much peace of mind as opposed to not being on it. Having had chemo I can also assure you Letrozole is much easier.
My advice is avoid the internet . Take Letrozole and see how it works for you. There are many things you can do to help - supplements; exercise, physio, diet, rest . I had an early menopause, and this is like menopause no 2 but not as bad.
Most importantly keep talking to your medical team.
sending you hugs.
