Hormones and Breast Cancer

Interesting page. Thanks for posting.

What I want to know -- and what no one seems to know -- is what the 50% who don't recur are doing differently. Are there diet and lifestyle changes? Supplement additions? Is it just luck of the draw?

It is a shame that hospitals don't have the funds to follow patients to attach some sort of helpful information to recurring vs. non-recurring patients. Unless a pharma company can make money off a pill, no study will ever be done. All doctors can evaluate is chemo success. Sigh.

Great info here. Audrey, so glad you escaped tragedy. Thank you for the black kohosh and hormone free meat and pesticide info. Siren- that is a heavy sigh on that study that needs to be done.

What about HRT is of such great benefit to you? Having a sister with breast cancer who is estrogen positive would make me VERY leery of taking hormones at all. And your doctor is prescribing a high dose. Some place I heard that 0.625 Premarin that I was taking was the average / most prescribed dosage. You're on 1.25 and may be going up to 2.5?

I was nearing 56 when I stopped taking Premarin "cold turkey" last November after the DCIS diagnosis. Only menopausal symptom was about two months of night sweats and sleep being upset a little. Nothing more.

I would be concerned about it. Good luck.

Hi Susan,

I too suffer from migraines after stopping HRT. I had a SAH/BSO in April 2001, was using an estorgen patch and Prometrium, I had to stop all HRT three months ago because of breast cancer and the migraines came back with a vengance. My neurologist has started me on Inderal which is a beta blocker and that is at least given me some relief from the migraines. See if your Dr. will give it a try. Good luck
