     I had my 4th Lupron shot last Thursday! I am officially on the downhill slide of the Lupron journey. Honestly, it has been a rather entertaining experience. I have had many highs and several lows, but ultimately, it is making me feel stronger. Don’t get me wrong, these side effects can hit at the appropriate times, but honestly, who cares. For example, Easter Sunday in the middle of the sermon, I had one of my bigger hot flashes. I wanted to leave and get water I was so hot. I just softly fanned myself.  Or, how about the time I went to the dentist and right as the dentist walks up…

  • Life after Cancer on Letrozole

    Valerie Penny
    6 Apr 2015 | 6:31 am
    After completion of my chemotherapy and just as my radiotherapy started I required to start taking letrozole: just one 2.5mg tablet per day. A 2.5mg tablet each day for 5 years. This is because my breast cancer wasa type that needs the hormone oestrogen to grow. In women who have been through the menopause, the main source of oestrogen is through the change of sex hormones called androgens into oestrogen. An enzyme called ‘aromatase’ is needed for this change to occur. Letrozole works by inhibiting (or blocking) this enzyme. This reduces the amount of oestrogen in your body, which…
