Breast Cancer/Arimidex and Oopherectomy


Hello, could you please tell me whether or not it is mandatory for gynecologists who deal with breast cancer to be educated in the side effects and risks of medications such as Arimidex and bilateral oopherectomy/hysterectomy, and should they tell their patients the risks and side effects of both?. Should theyinvestigate and test for any side effects such as bone pain and treat accordingly with medications such as bisphosphanates, and/or inform the patient of anything else that could help them before their problem becomes severe? I am quite concerned as during my time with my gynecologist and under her care, I have a T score of ^T-3.5 after arimidex and oopherectomy  Thank you.

I'm a Swede living in Sweden. I'm also educated and trained in Sweden. So I have to answer from a Swedish perspective that may or may not be valid to you. My answer to all your questions have to be yes. My only advice to you is to seek a second opinion from another doctor who can check you - which for obvious reasons I can not do.
