femara reation to emotions

I know endometriosis isnt the same as breast cancer, and I think you're very brave for going through everything that you have. My 1st ovarian tomour was when I was 17yrs old (Now 23yrs of age), went through another surgery last summer, and onto a cancer drug called Lupron which they said helps with endometriosis, on that drug I managed to gain 30pounds in a month, so they switched me off and sent me to the BC Womans Hospital, where they decided to put me on Femara. The joint pain only seems to be in the ankle, knee and shoulder, I damaged/some I broke, in a fall back in High School. I too, want to get off the drug already due to the crying fits, sometimes they are so strong I cant even speak, and you CANNOT believe how good it feels to know I am not alone, with having these bouts. Even after I called the Hospitals Hotline about them, I still felt so alone. I am so thankful you took the time to reply. Tomorrow I am to call the BC Womans Hospital, due to the sharp pains in my breasts. Also,I am going to my family doctor to see if they can put me on something that will reduce the crying, or atleast calm me down a bit so they're not so violent. I feel guilty wanting to go off of it myself, with the price, and the benefits out surpassing the risks.  (Aug 27, 2007 | post #3)

femara reation to emotions

Im on Femara to try and control my endometriosis, Ive already had my left ovary, fl' tube, and an 8pound tomour removed, Femara is pretty much the last ditch effort for the right ovary which has been causing me much pain. Ive noticed the pain has lessend on good days, but its still horrible on the bad days, the first couple days I had a headache so bad I couldnt get out of bed, it was so strong it made me sick to my stomach. Im noticing joint pain in my knees and my already bad shoulder and ankle acting up. But the worst is these sobbing fits I seem to have, The BC Womans Hospital clames it will either lessen or become worse, but I cant control it and feel out of place when trying to deal with it... has anyone else had these emotinal ups and downs?  (Aug 25, 2007 | post #1)
