What is the percentage of her2 breast cancer recurring if I stop taking femara (letrozole) which I have been on for 2 1?

To be more direct, your question cannot be answered since we don't have info re: your stage, rx to-date, personal health, etc. Regardless, people sometimes minimize the effectiveness of aromatase inhibitors--they are potent chemotherapeutic agents, proven to help cure breast cancer. The current recommendations (5 years) are based on sound clinical trials. Please don't stop.
