Anastrozole and the Sh*tz
Hello my sisters in BC -- a lovely topic, I know. Do many of you have diarrhea from Anastrozole? I am just starting month three and have had it since week two. I was managing as best as I could (BRAT diet, etc.) but it is almost non-stop now. I called my Oncologist yesterday as it had gotten untenable. I was up stripping my bed 2-3 times a night and doing laundry. She said the diarrhea wasn't a known side effect (WHAT???) and that I should call my PC, which I did and she sent me to the ER. I spent the day there and got IV fluids, and a cat scan which was negative and sent home that night. They told me told me to contact my Oncologist. I honestly, don't know where to turn now. I am trying to manage it on my own, but I can only eats so many bananas. If you Google Anastrozole (which doctors hate for you to do) it is most definitely a much know side effect. Mostly, I just needed to vent, but any helpful suggestions would be much appreciated.
