Letrozole vs aromasin

6 Feb 2018 21:27

I am new to this site. Was diagnosed with Stage I invasive ductal carcinoma in August. I had a lumpectomy in September with intraoperative radiation. Nodes were negative and margins clear. Specimen was ER and PR positive so was put on Letrozole. Lasted 3 month.... Nausea 24/7.... Like morning sickness. Just felt tired all the time  and had trouble sleeping. Went off it for a month and felt great, but my oncologist started me on aromasin.  Too early to tell, but hoping for less severe side effects.

Hi captaink

Just wanted to stop by t say welcome t the forum.

I too was diagnosed with BC in August last yr with lumpectomy in the Sept. Sorry can’t comment on your new Med - I was given Letrozole but been fine on it ( well apart from hot flushes - but they seem t b getting less and less).

Hope the new meds continue t b ok:-). Know you are not alone in this and we r all here for u if u want or needs us. Take care Sandra x
