Cancer: Breast board


Hi
Does anyone know -if you had ductal carcinoma in situ and taken off HRT which was keeping my bones stable - whether you could use natural progesterone cream? I don't know if it is just the estrogen that is the problem or not. I am on Evista for the bones which is not working. I went down another 3% on it and am now 36% below fracture level. I can not take any of the other osteo meds and heard that the natural progesterone cream helps the bones. I have been begging all my docs for HRT but no one will give it to me. I was thinking I'd rather chance the breast cancer coming back (the surgeon said it would probably come back invasive/aggressive) than die of osteo. I already broke my collerbone by opening the car door into it and a rib from doing nothing. If anyone has any info about this please let me know. Thanks.
