I was already out and about a little yesterday. I took a short walk to a coffee shop 2 blocks away. It was pretty hot and humid, so I had a coffee and read a bit before walking home. That was about my limit for the day, but it was nice to be able to do that much already. As Bob said, I will be on the Ibrance for a total of 6 mo to a year. I'll stay on the endocrine therapy for up to 10 years or until I would have already reached menopause. I have started to get short but frequent hot flashes, which are tons of fun, especially at night. Sometimes I put on and take off the covers up to 5 times before I can settle down to sleep. Yuck! Well, I know I'm not the first to deal with this, nor will I be the last. I am taking melatonin to help me sleep, that has been awesome. I was having too many nights of very iffy sleep, which didn't help with work at all.
Overall, I am doing very well. I just need to follow all my Drs orders and keep communicating with them what I'm experiencing.
Thanks again for all your thoughts,
