I'm currently on letrozole for estrogen positive breast cancer. I have completed my surgery and radiotherapy treatment. I've been on letrozole for about 10 weeks now, I'm finding the side effects very difficult and they are impacting my daily life. I have joint and muscle discomfort, along with very low energy. My G.P has given me paracetamol to help off set the pain, and I am also on Vimovo. When I return for my follow-up oncology appointment, I will mention these side effects. My main question is, is there anything oncology can add to my treatment care to help with these symptoms, also will things improve over time, or would I be best to change to an alternative medication to letrozole?
Thank you in advance.
