So, I'm on 75 mg. of Ibrance, monthly Faslodex and every 8 weeks on Xgeva for about 6 months now. Last scans (after 3 mths on this regimen) showed full treatment response, which is fantastic and I'm grateful! Now, I'm having patella knee pain and foot pain and other random joint pains. The knee stuff is really starting to hamper my quality of life, especially with exercise. I run, lift weights, hike, swim, etc. It keeps me sane. But, I'm starting to get worried about this knee pain and that will start to limit my activity. Dr. says probably from Faslodex and that it's building in my system. No estrogen=joint pain.
First, anyone else having this issue? If so, what did you do about it?
Should I try to cut back on faslodex? Anyone had experience with this? I don't want to sacrifice my clean scans, but also want to live my life. I appreciate any thoughts about this.
Maybe I should add, that mets were to neck, vertebrae, pelvis, hip, rib. Had radiation to neck and have lingering symptoms (numbness in hands, weakness in arms) off an on.
