    Is femara necessary when my breasts were removed?

    Femara lowers estrogen levels in postmenopausal women, which may slow the growth of certain types of breast tumors that need estrogen to grow in the body.

    Femara is used to treat breast cancer in postmenopausal women. It is often given to women who have been taking tamoxifen (Nolvadex, Soltamox) for 5 years.

    I would think that if the doctor prescribed this for you, then the answer is yes it is necessary in order to prevent more tumors from growing.

    Hopefully you are on the road to recovery now. My best to you after going through this surgery.
