Hi everyone.  I had a check up with my onc today and he told me I will be on Femara for another 2-5 years.  I am approaching my 5 year mark this winter and expected to be coming off of Femara by Spring.  I wasn't aware that studies are now showing that an extended period of Femara is recommended.  I don't really mind as I  have been fortunate to tolerate it well enough, ( with the exception of some stiff joints ).  Has anyone else been extended?  Thank you.

    I was told more than 2 years

    I was told more than 2 years ago that I would be on Femara/letrozole 'forever'.  When I started, Femara was not available in generic form as it is today - letrozole.
