I am currently taking Letrozole and it's been less then a year out of my 5 year prescription. I notice when I comb/brush my hair or when I shampoo there is hair loss. Not chemo hair loss but what I consider more then normal loss. So far it's not noticeable but want to know what I have ahead of me.
Did you experience hair loss/thinning?
Did the hair loss occur during the entire time on the hormone blocker?
Was the hair loss noticeable?
How long after you've finished the hormone blocker did the hair loss stop?

Buffythevampire‍ I was on Letrozole for almost 4 months and I definitely noticed hair falling out.  I quit taking it back in January and I am still noticing hair falling out when blow drying my hair.  It seems to be less, but it has been almost 5 months and the effect is still there.
Good luck on your surgery next week.
