    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I had breast cancer in 2009, which was due to hormones. When I have to take tamoxifen after the irradiation, I am soon tricked out. Had just wanted to beat me, was from minute to the other minute something of strange, I had not recognized me again .First cheered and I wanted to tear out trees, in the näxten minute I would have jumped out of the window. My Physiotherapheut says I’m manic, that’s me too. Then the doc said I have to take the monthly injection, the would be the hammer.Enatone-gyn.und seut the torment me every day, lack of motivation, hot flashes, I get nothing more in the series and that is how agonizing die.jeden day.ich I got help, because I was completely alone ‘I’ve gained 30 kilos and it’s getting more and more, even if I eat nothing. It’s cruel. And I do not want to live like that anymore. Today I sat down and swore I would not take it that way.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    Tamoxifen for a year. Full program breast cancer surgery at the age of 48 years, breast conservative, chemo (6 times a session) and 36 times radiation. And now the side effects, insane hot flashes, sleepless nights, depression, lack of concentration, toenails had loosened, since March frail thin-grooved thin, badly growing fingernails, torn fingertips, so that sometimes you can barely handle. Vaginal discharge or abdominal pain and bone pain comlettis. Problems with the sense of taste. So, everything that the others have.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    Slowly and very insidiously, the side effects have set and strengthened so much that I discontinued the drug prematurely after taking one year. By the side effects (especially strong pain in all joints and muscles, listlessness, hair loss, nail brittleness, strong mood swings, sleep problem etc.) my quality of life was so severely limited that it became unbearable! The drug has actually done its work, but – from my personal point of view – the price is too high.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    No, you do not have to go through it! I dropped Tamoxifen after 2.5 years and I feel much better since then. I still live after 5 1/2 years. Everyone should examine for themselves, critically whether one wants to endure the side effects, or whether one crashes with deartigen depression, hearing loss, vision loss and GOT VALUE above 100, as with me, just before the train or from the bridge. In my case mammary carcinoma invasive ductal 5.8 cm big hormone dependent and a DCIS 6.00 cm, I should have chemo, rayenteraphy and zoladex and tamoxifen. Did not do chemo, own decision! Then I was taken away from Zoladex because it was completely unnecessary administered to the new oncologist (12 months). And later I freed myself from my free will, of course, in consultation with my gyn Tamoxifen. As already said in my special case. So since critically questioned with you and your body, that’s my advice or my experience! Stay healthy and take good care of yourself. Petra
