I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997, had a mastectomy, no cancer in the 18 lymph nodes that were removed. However, the tumor size was large and I was small so I still had the chemo and the radiation aftewards.
I was on Tamoxifin for 5 years and then Evista for 3. I recently went to an oncologist for a checkup and considering my high risk of family history, mother and sister had brest cancer also, he prescribed Arimedex and later Actenol. I developed severe joint pain starting in my left hand and it continued on to the arm and legs. I stopped taking both a few months later and now am taking Three Imperial Mushrooms and Juan Bi 1 (AR-125) by Pro Botanix. for the arthritis and joint pain symptoms. I want to know if I still need to take the Arimedex again, to keep the cancer away or will the Imperial Mushrooms ( with no side affects what so ever) will do the trick. I have changed my diet and lead a relatively stress free life, but with the family history and my own cancer, I need some
more input. I have been cancer free since 1997.
Thank you so much.
