Bioidentical hormones..is anyone taking after breast cancer?
I have 4 tx left of my weekly taxol. Prior to that I did 4 DD AC. Now that I am getting close to the end of my treatments, I have started to research diet, supplements, etc to hopefully help avoid recurrence. I have been reading Suzanne Somers, the Anticancer book, and some others. Overall, its been somewhat depressing as the books basically state chemo doesn't work and I wasted my time doing it plus compromised my immune system in the process. Being Her2+ , cant say I regret my chemo decision and nothing I can do about that now anyway, but I feel having balanced hormones is interesting and makes some sense. The theory being that hormones only cause cancer when they are out of balance and they do a lot of good for overall health and actually reduce cancer recurrence if balanced. As long as they are natural and not the synthetic kind. However, I am triple positive and dont think this is something to mess around with. My Onc wants me on tamox once chemo is done. I haven't had the hormone talk with her yet, but I'm not guessing she will be supportive. Any thoughts... has anyone else researched?
