Verzenio for early stage cancer

Options

Hi everyone. Has anyone taken Verzenio for stage 1 cancer and if so when
did you start it? I have been on letrozole for 7 months now and my
oncologist just today asked if I wanted to start Verzenio too due to my
high Ki67 and 1 positive micromet in my sentinel node. I thought you had
to start Verzenio at the same time as letrozole for early stage one
breast cancer, not 7 months later. I also read the side effects and am
really wondering if it is worth it! Thank you!

    I am sorry that I can’t answer your question but hopefully someone will be along soon who can. You have started two identical threads. It is often easier to keep track of answers so that they are in one place. Perhaps the moderators can combine them for you. Take care

    I did that on purpose so that I might get more answers. People may go to different places on here and not see it if I just posted it under one topic. So far no answers. Hard decision to make.

    No problem! Any thread with recent responses will be near the top of the active topics page regardless of which sub-forum they’re posted in. Take care
