I really did not want to publish this latest study because Breast Cancer Survivors do not need any more bad news, but I had to do so. If any of you are debating whether to say on Tamoxifen or Aromatase Inhibitors for longer than 5 years, this study of over 62,000 women is important for you to read BEFORE you make your decision with your doctor.
My Oncologist, Dr. Daniel Hayes, M.D. from the University of Michigan was the Senior Author of this study along with his team of International experts. It was just published in the New England Journal of Medicine on November 9, 2017. I know firsthand how thorough Dr. Hayes is in everything he does, so I had to post this. Since the time I started Aromatase Inhibitors over 5 years ago, Dr. Hayes told me to plan on 15 years or more of AIs as long as my bones hold out. Now I know why since he was privy to a lot of information.
