I have been on Arimidex since November 2016. I would normally run 3 miles a day before the diagnosis and BMX in June and July2016.

Uve5been on aromas in for over 5 years and I definitely do not have much energy. I'm done for after a day of work and need to rest a lot on weekends.
I'm on aromasin which is similar. I have the same issues. Some women have been able to return to running and working out, keep trying.
