ovarian suppression + exemestane

Good evening,

I'm 45, stage 2b IDC, ER/PR+, HER-

Finished chemo and finishing radiation. Oncologist suggests ovarian suppression + exemestane (AI) next.

If you had ovarian suppression + exemestane, can you please share your experience and how side effect were treated.

What would you recommend to reduce side effects? Any diet changes needed?

I know AI effects bones, what can be done to help with bone loss?

I'm no smoker and try to exercise daily.

Lady_from_Ontario‍ , I’ve always been told that weight/ resistance training can help to keep your bones strong. You might check with your doctor about that, even if it’s just light (3-5 lb) weights to carry when you walk.
Thank you, ladies!
