It is Mimi again sisters.
Hormonal therapy is very personal decision. There is a second SE for me which is AI is a daily reminder that I had this crap.
If you decide for it but concerned about SEs...
1. Believe it or not many antidepressants help w bone pain somewhat. I am saying this because many of us take wellbutrin etc due to BC related PTSD.
2. Claritin helps a bit more. Amazon has the best price for brand name. I take Claritin at night. Loratidine which is generic Claritin should help also.
3. Melatonin is another one.
4. Exercise helps. If I dont walk I ache more. I know I want to snack all the time. In a way AI makes me more conscious about diet and exercise. I am embracing both. I was really upset that I gained back 15 out of 26 pounds I lost due to chemo. When I saw my scale going down again, I was happy.
Speaking of exercise, I only.have 9100 steps today. Going to make 900 steps.before the night is over.
