Kylie Minogue is still suffering the side effects of cancer medication – and insists she will be relieved when she can quit her treatment next year.
The Australian pop star underwent surgery and chemotherapy when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, but five years later she is still taking drugs to ensure the disease doesn’t return.

The Spinning Around singer is hoping doctors will give her a five-year all-clear soon – and admits she is preparing herself to “adjust” to a life without medication.

She tells Britain’s Mail on Sunday, “Trust me, I have been in floods of tears at my oncologist, saying, ‘I can’t stand it, get me off this stuff!’ And then he will become very stern and say, ‘We have to cure you.’ So you have to carry on with it because it works.

“I’ll finish early next year and that will be amazing, but I’ve also heard you can feel quite insecure when you first come off it because you have relied on this medication for so long. It’s going to be a big adjustment.”
