I want to know has anyone after breast cancer surgery started taking bioidenticals? My surgery was over a year ago and i just can not stand these hot flashs anymore.

    Are you hormone receptor positive? If you are I believe it can be dangerous to take something that mimics estrogen. You don't want to feed cancer.

      yes they are positive but I have been reading about the bioidenticals and wondering if anyone has tried that type of theraphy with the receptor being positive?

      Tell your doctor about what you're thinking. He or she would know the best answer. Better to be on the safe side as far as cancer is concerned. Good luck! :)

    I have bad hot flashes too and I am on Arimidex. Hope it gets better.

    I really understand what your saying about the hot flashes but for sure want to check with your doctor first.
