My good friend, Kris, is a brilliant scientist with GlaxoSmithKline who works on cancer medicines. She’s currently in Boston at a cancer symposium. This is the text conversation we had today:
Kris: were u ER+ and HER-?
Kris: there was a study showing if women had side effects with joint pain or hot flashes they had less chance of cancer reacurrance than women who did not have symptoms.
Me: Suhweet! I should be good then!!
Kris: i know!!
So for all of you ER+/HER- ladies who suffer from hot flashes and joint pain, take heart! It might just be worth it! Stay tuned. I’ll be sure to tell you more when she gets back and can fill me in!
I found this article regarding this new study.
