HRT after Breast Cancer? Maybe!
I just wanted to share this information I've found. The first is a book cowritten by an oncologist, Dr Bluming, called Estrogen Matters. The second is an article he just had published in Cancer Journal entitled 'HRT after Breast Cancer - It Is Time.' I would be happy to send a copy of the article to anyone as he was kind enough to send it to me after I contacted him with questions. The last is a link to a podcast about the book, where the authors both argue that the alleged dangers of HRT after menopause desperately need to be reexamined and reconsidered, and they do discuss that for breast cancer survivors as well at the end. https://peterattiamd.com/caroltavris-avrumbluming/
I know, it's everything we've been told to fear and avoid like the plague, and I am certainly much less sure about that now, especially since I'm currently suffering through abject misery related to onset of menopause. The research is cited throughout and it is an academic work, not some sketchy quack nonsense. Believe me, I'm the last person to go against science and medical treatment, but that's the point of his work, pushing for scientific questioning of current (but likely incomplete and outdated) thought and practice related to menopause. And encouraging women to continue advocating for better research and quality of life / health / treatment options, which I think we are definitely all about and experienced in by now.
