How Many are doing 10 years on Aromatase Inhibitors
When I started on Femara, I was told I would need to take it for 5 years. Now that I have finally reached the 5 years (and having experienced many side affects from the drug along the way), many oncologists are now saying that it is best to extend treatment up to 10 years.
How many out there, are being told to continue taking the AI for up to 10 years, and if so, what are the reasons the oncologists are giving you for the extension in time. Is it because of the grade of cancer, number of positive lymph nodes, size of tumour, chance of recurrence? At what point, or problems, or bone damage are they saying, no stop the drug, you can't take it any more
