I have had on and off bone pain for 2 years now since the finish of chemo for breast cancer. I was put on a hormone blocker for 5 years to reduce chances of ca return. I had to stop workign 6 months ago due to leg and hand weakness that has improved only to be followed w/severe pain. I take occasional Oxycodone for it but don't want to be dependent on them. I am considering stopping the hormone blocker ( Aromasin) to see if that helps. has anyone else had problems w/these types of drugs. ( Tamoxifan, Arimedex, Femara) are all similar and can casue same side effects. I'd rather take my chances I think and live w/out pain.
It seems none of these recent new drugs are ever fully tested enough and the FDA does nothing to research the potential damage from them.
Please help.
