In brief: Forever

Breast cancer with bone metastasis hormonal therapy will not be discontinued even may need additional treatments to keep the tumor under control , speak to your oncologist.

In brief: INdefinitely

If you have a hormone receptor positive tumor that is responding to hormone therapy, there is no set limit on the duration unless there are side effects or the tumor develops resistance.
