I was diagnosed in 2018 at the age of 31. Because I have 3 kids, and wasn't planning on any more, after chemo and radiation, I opted to have ovaries removed and take Arimidex rather than take Tamoxifen.
I have been taking the Arimidex since around September 2019. I don't know if the side effects (mostly back/joint pain and muscle weakness) are from the meds or just menopause at 33 LOL....Anyways, I have been reading some of the posts on here to familiarize myself with alternatives to taking Arimidex. My questions are:
-Is there a special protocol of various supplements that you have found works for you?
-If taking supplements, is there a specific company you purchase from that can guaranty the quality of the supplement?
-Any tips/Comments/experiences good or bad that you can offer!
Diagnosed at age 31.
