    Man, I wish I could discontinue arimidex! I hate it. Severe Joint/bone pain. I always assumed my forgetfulness and not being able to remember words was chemo brain..... Maybe from my meds instead? Only 8 1/2 more years.....

    That's the problem. It seems I have to drag info out of my Dr about this Med. I really am worried about the memory issue and she did say that may not return! So when I do get energy to bathe and dress to go out, I can't remember what I was going out for! Or worse yet, I get confused driving paces I have been going to for 30 years! The way I figure this Med is that you go from 60 yrs old to 100 yrs old in a few months! And to think before I took this Med I ran a corporation. Now I can't remember to pay a bill. I am wondering if anyone else has memory issues?
