Survivor since 2007
I am in my last year of Femara and feel extremely lucky to have had a type of breast cancer that was ER+ PR+ Her2- There are drugs that can lower the hormones my breast cancer fed off of. You are also lucky to have this type of breast cancer. Plenty of women on this board so not have this option as they don't have the type of cancer that would benefit from this type of treatment. When I was diagnosed, my oncologist --ran the numbers-- and taking this hormone blocking drug upped my percentages of life by a bunch. I urge you to make this decision with the same seriousness as the other procedure to rid yourself of this tough opponent. You have such a early stage cancer, but you will be stopping your treatment before it has been completed. You probably feel like you have done enough.
I can assure you, if you follow through with your decision, and you have a reoccurrence, you can't go back and have a do-over.
Although there are no guarantee's, this is your golden opportunity to get rid of this monster, and starve any lingering cancer cells of nourishment. Take care, Sharon
