Hi: My name is Mary and in November, 2012 I experienced a pain/cramping in my lower left abdomen . It lasted probably a day and a half, then nothing. I made a Dr. appointment, and he prescribed an ultrasound . I didn t get in for my ultrasound until late January, 2013, and the results of the ultrasound was- thickening of the uterin wall. My Dr. then made an appointment with a Gynocologist , which was for today, however, due to a very stormy day, she cancelled. I have to call her office tomorrow to re-schedule an appointment. Last January, I had a lumpectomy performed on my left breast, went through radiation , however opted out of chemo , but I am taking a daily pill - Letrozole -for 5 years. March 1,2013 will be the start of my second year on this pill. Naturally I am concerned, and even more concerned now that the appointment was cancelled, like could it be cancer??? My friend had a similar thickening of the uterin wall quite a few years ago and she was given pills to try to thin it and then had an ablaision(spelling?) procedure done. My mind tends to runneth over. Your input into this will be much appreciated. Thanks.

I recently switched from arimidex to femara because of bursitis in my right hip. Since that time, with PT, the bursitis has eased. I can now walk without aid. But now there is a different problem. My ankles(both) have started swelling & I have stability problems walking. The treatment was for stage one breast cancer, no chemo just radiation after a lumpectomy. What else is there I can take to suppress estrogen but will not give me extreme side effects?Nancy Long

It has been a little over a year from having a lumpectomy, chemo and radiation. I am taking letrozole and have a terrible time at night, in bed, with my legs hurting. It is the only time my legs hurt and it helps to sleep on a body pillow. My LDH level has been over 300 each time I have blood work done. Could both of these be from the letrozole?
