Didnt notice any se for the first couple of days, but then every muscle in my body started aching, so I finally looked at the list of s/e that came with the script. The muscle and joint pain are se. The med is Letrozole. I thought if I didnt know the se I wouldnt get any, wishful thinking. Can hardly get my arms over my head to get dressed and my legs just throb. My right leg was already swollen b4 starting, now it is swollen and throbbing.
Last night, the cancer wellness house had tkts to the basketball game. So my son and I went, got there and the seats were at the very top. Went to see if I could pay to get lower seats, the tkt guy was such a smartass. Said we give free tkts and they arent good enough? I looked at him and said no, they are at the top and I cant get up there very easily.He refused to upgrade them, told me I could pay 128. for better sseats or use what they gave us. So it took about 10 minutes to get there. Another guy from my support group had his 2 sons helping him.
He said he also tried when they saw where the seats were. Fiunny thing is the arena wasnt even 2/3 full.
I guess they could write them off! Still enjoyed getting out, but today my legs were so bad, I could hardly get out of bed.
Has anyone else had these side effets on this med? Hoping it tailors off the longer I am on it. Now I am thinking this may be why my orig onco said he didnt think I could(or my body)handle thse meds.
