Some would say this might be a self-fulfilling prophecy, but I know more than one woman who would agree with me. Letrozole has had the biggest impact on my life in the short term, and not in a good way. The pain on Letrozole vs. Anastrozole is so much worse than before.
And I have not been on the drug for very long.
Indeed, only two weeks. According to my friend who tried this medicine first, the pain did not really hit her until about now. She was taken off of the drug after her thumbs became frozen.
Doing any sort of work has been nearly impossible for me as it causes extreme pain, so much so that I can’t sleep. The house and yard are going to pot, but I’m still alive, for which I’m grateful.
Some times in your life, you realize just how fragile your body can be. I miss the strong, healthy body that I used to enjoy. One that didn’t cause me pain each and every day.
Still, I’m alive. And that’s a blessing.
