Phytoestrogens
I had a bilateral mastectomy in Oct 07. Neg sentinel nodes, ER/PR+, Her2-, Oncotype score 1, started Arimidex in November 07. My question is regarding my diet. I have lost 55lbs, work out regularly especially lower body and weight bearing to prevent osteoporosis. Recently, the topic of phytoestrogens in the diet have come up. Being as I am not on an estrogen blocker, but on an aromatase inhibitor, is it possible for phytoestrogens to feed my type of cancer cells? I will say my oncologist stated that I was NED after my surgery. And, I have read that the phytoestrogens may actually help in that they can fit into the same places on a cancer cell as estrogen, but do not deliver the same food for the cancer cell.....and therefore block access to any free floating estrogen my body may have.
