The ugly beast has raised it's head again and my latest CT/PET scan indicates that I have got my third recurrence. It's still confined to the pelvis (no organ or lymph node involvement by the looks of it), but my team reckon it is too close to sidewall to operate and get clear margins (although my scans are going for a second opinion to the Royal Marsden in London, which is a world renowned cancer hospital, to see whether they have any suggestions).
My tumour is oestrogen receptive, so I am starting on hormone treatment (Femara - generic name = letrozole) which is an aromatase inhibitor (like Arimidex) to see if we can control it.
I have a feeling that some ladies on this board have been prescribed Femara (Mary Ann?), even though it is primarily given for breast cancer. IF anyone has taken it, I'd be interested to hear your views on side effects, response rates etc. as it's really difficult to find information on the internet relating specifically to endometrial cancer.
I am seeing my oncologist in a month, so will have the opportunity to ask any questions, so I'd be grateful for any help/advice you can give
