    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    (I am beginning a new post as feefoo responded to a very old post.)
    Yes, feefoo, this is an old post, but this subject of whether or not to take an anti-hormone med comes up regularly: To take or not to take...???? In fact, if you look down just a few posts, you will find "Di I Need My Meds" posted. It is the latest such discussion. Please read thru that one.

    What it boils down to is this: It all depends! (How about that for a definitive answer???) So much must be taken into consideration: Your particular type of cancer...How extensive it is...Family History....Other meds or health issues you may have...etc.

    I would suggest you do the research, discuss it with each of your medical team, give it plenty of thought, and weigh the benefits vs the risks. Hopefully, you will arrive at a place that seems the best fit for you. There is no one-size-fits-all along this journey.

    We will be sending you good thoughts that your decision might not be a difficult one!

    Also, as this is an old post, I am going to begin a new one to you alone so that others won't miss your post and can chime in as well.

    Just when the caterpillar thought her world was over, she became a butterfly! Don't give up five minutes before the miracle!!
