GCT and Letrozole?

My sister has just had surgery to remove a 3rd recurrance of Granulosa Cell Tumor. The recurrances have been withing 8 years of one another and the recent one only 2 years after the second. The doctors are recommending Letrozole as Hormone Therapy, however, my sister is very concerned about osteoporosis, as this is one of the side effects. Has anyone undergone this therapy? If so, how long have you been without recurrance? Also, any difficulties with your bones?

Also, she received no therapy after the first two surgeries, only a total hysterectomy...

Thank you!
