Stephen, if you are talking about hormone blocking medication which is given post treatment, I started taking Arimidex(I am post menopausal with hormone positive breast cancer) right after finishing radiation therapy. I did not have to have chemo. I saw my medical oncologist within the week after finishing radiation and started medication two days later. Taking it for five years, I thought that the sooner I started then the sooner I would finish.
