I've had 9 rounds of fulvestrant and ibrance but because my husband has been redundant I've lost my private health care and have to go back into the NHS. Under their rules I have to swap to letrozol and ibrance, though my new oncologist has told me that he can prescribe fulvestrant when letrozole stops working or if I have an adverse reaction. I can also pay for the fulvestrant by private prescription and would be around £600 a month.
My previous oncologist was adamant that the fulvestrant/ibrance combination would be the most effective treatment for me and I've had 2 good scan results while taking it. I'd really like to hear if any one else has swapped to fulvestrant after letrozole and if it was a successful transfer. I know that statistically letrozole doesn't work as long as fulvestrant and I'm worried about switching.
