Debbie, I wondered about this too when I saw your post. It looks like our doctors need to get together and have a little talk! After 4 years my onc. said I should take anastrozole another year, then we would decide whether or not to continue on a year to year basis, based on current research at that time. When I saw him a year later in January he acted like it was a no-brainer that I continue with it. He did say I could take a 1 or 2 week break from the drug to see if it had an affect on my horrible joint pain, but he told me that even if things improved (they didn't) I needed to go right back on it after the 2 weeks.
Do you think our doctors are looking at different studies?
