After 1 year on Femara, its no longer working. My Oncologist wants to start me on Faslodex. What side effects can I expect, if any? I've heard this shot is painful. I'd also like to know exactly how much should be administered when just starting out?

Sounds like these are for treating breast cancer and this is a lung cancer site. There should be a separate area listed here for breast cancer. Wishing you the best. Take care, Judy
