Hormone therapy or not if bad side effects
5 months now on Letrozole…post 20 radiation treatments after removal of 1 cm invasive ductal carcinoma, oncotype 17 and no nodes positive but high grade all markers. The severe hot flashes are back and with adrenaline rushes that keep me from falling quickly back to sleep. Been awake every 1-2 hrs for years now with hot flashes but finally had been able to fall back to sleep as the severity improved…now bad again. Drenching sweats, adrenaline surges, insomnia. Cholesterol shot up.
Statistics scare ya. Debating quality of life and the fear of it returning or worse yet distal recurrence. Anyone opt to stop hormonal therapy and are many years out?
