    Hi, I had bilateral breast cancer with double lumpectomy , radiotherapy, chemotherapy in 2020 and Letrozole for 2 years and prolia for bone thinning. I have been taken off the hormone treatment because of osteoporosis, fatigue and hip pain. I would welcome comments from others, especially the bilateral cancer, and not continuing hormone blockers. I believe the added benefits in taking blockers is around 2-5%. Best wishes to all who are working through their journey and I look forward to any comments. J.
