After Aromasin

Is anyone still experiencing bad hot flashes after being off Aromasin or some of the other meds? I have been off for 7 months and still suffer
from horrible hot flashes. It gets so bad that people look at me because
I am the only one dripping sweat in an air conditioned area. Please help.

Re: After Aromasin

I hear you sister! I am coming to the end of my 5 years of a hormone blocking drug (that starts with an "F") and the horrible hot flashes. My fear/concern is that these will continue. It is so embarrassing and people look at you try to mop your face as the sweat is rolling off. I have adopted a saying as my face turns beet red and sweat starts rolling, I smile and say...."Just having my own personal summer." Have you asked your oncologist about this yet? Mine put me on a drug that is known to cut down on them. I fear if I mention it here I will get kicked off for advertising. It starts with an "E" and I couldn't take enough of it for it to be effective. There has got to be some relief out there for these horrible symptoms. I don't think doctor's quite understand what kind of torture this is. It is not only physical awful but socially embarrassing. I end up wearing a sweatband around my home. I carry a paper towel with me at all times. I know how you feel....and it is awful. Hang in there and take care.

Thanks uptown. It is good to know I am not the only "wet one" out there.

Re: After Aromasin

Ugh! I get them all day and night too. They are awful. I always get cold just before a hot flash so I know exactly when it is coming. I get completely drenched. I take Tamoxifen but had them before I started it due to Chemo putting me into menopause. Let's hope they don't last too many years. It has been almost 2 years with them for me so far. Not a whole lot you can do for them I guess.
