Aromatase Inhibitor Therapy Longer Than 10 Years
I've been on Femara since July 2012. Ten years last month. I would love to be done with this drug--I can't sleep well, I can't lose weight, I get UTIs every time I ride my bike. My bones have suffered a bit but I'm on a bisphosphonate and it's helping. Femara is my mental safety net. I'm afraid to stop. There's not a lot of research for people who take AIs longer than ten years. Would Olivia Newton John's cancer have recurred if she'd had access to this drug when she was diagnosed in 1992? Should I argue to continue at my next oncology appointment? Anybody have opinions, insights, brilliant thoughts?
