Continuing AI for more than 10 years
I think this topic is being discussed here in another thread, but please excuse me for starting a new thread because I can't find the one I'm thinking of. I've also posted in the forum for hormonal treatments.
I've been absent from the boards for a while, living my life. I am now living in Europe. I am at the 10-year mark for Letrozole, and my MO is giving me the choice of staying on or discontinuing. He feels that cardiac risks at this point are greater than benefits from continuing. My bone density is ok so that is not a reason to stop.
As you can see, I had a high number of lymph nodes and was staged at IIIC. Since then, I haven't had any symptoms to get me in the scanner. My MOs have never run any scans. I got myself into the scanners in 2013 or 2014 by seeing a more aggressive doctor out of state, and everything was clear. That was the last time. I don't know what I'm dealing with.
I am hoping to learn more about whether other women in my stage are continuing AIs past 10 years. Thanks!
