 3  Stage 1B Breast Cancer, recurrence Deep bone pain, all over body aches, headaches, feeling very unwell(like an overal general malaise ), some months vomiting. Stomach pains. Bladder pain. UTI, 5 of the 8 months I have been taking it. Am taking this because I have had trouble tolerating Aromasin, Arimidex, Tamoxifen. I keep taking Faslodex and enduring side effects because it is supposed to be very effective in keeping cancer at bay which is an issue because I have already had a recurrence(prior to Faslodex) F 60 8 months

 5  bone metastasis after breast cancer Other than my butt cheeks being lumpy several days after the injections, I have experienced no other problems. Wish all cancer meds would be so easy. After only 6 months of injections, my pet scan showed NO cancer activity. Previously the pet scan had shown activity in femur and pelvic bone, and lymph nodes in chest. Feeling very blessed!!! F 7 months

 3  Stage 4 breast cancer Frequent headaches especially at night. Bone, muscle and joint pain. All cancer patients need to change their diet to 90 raw fruits, veggies, beans, and nuts. Colon and liver cleansing helps too. Countless herbs that help also. Don't kid yourself. Your body is toxic if you have cancer. F 52 2 months
 5  metastatic breast cancerr some pain and swelling at injection site for a day or so. We taped on small ice packs immediately which were helpful. I'm off Faslodex today and trying Arimidex because I can't justify the expense to the taxpayers...I'm on Medicare & Medicaid with a terminal diagnosis. The info. I've just read makes me leery of the new drug especially since Faslodex was working well. F 66 7 months

 1  Metastatic Breast Cancer EXTREME SWELLING from the waist down. Can hardly walk, very, very painful with rash and itching. Feel as though skin will bust. Also vomiting and violent diarrhea. Feel no desire to go on. If this is what the rest of my life will be.....what's the point? It should be given as torture at GITMO. The doctor said that none of my complaints from the FIRST injection were from the drug. At the LAST visit, he said it was all because of the cancer. He's a QUACK!! F 84 1.5 months
2 shots 2X M

FASLODEX  (FULVESTRANT):  Fulvestrant is used to treat certain types of breast cancer. Breast cancer cells need the hormone estrogen in order to grow. Fulvestrant works by blocking the effect of estrogen, slowing tumor cell growth.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
