I have been on faslodex for 2.5 months now and I still have some increase in a pleural effusion that I have had for over a year now. It has been small and stable up until august so they switched me from Letrozole/Ibrance (which I was on for 6 years). I am having my lung drained today but I am worried it has increased.
Am I being impatient? I also just had covid 3 weeks ago and am wondering if covid could have increased the fluid.
I have also been told if you do well on one line you are likely to do well on the next one. Is this true? Am I likely to get 6 years on Faslodex?
I'm 59 and my husband left me after his affair so I want a few more years of a good life before I go. My daughter is 19 and struggling and I want to get her settled as well.
Any information is greatly appreciated.
