    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    My experiences are, I have very strong Schweisausbrüche, Gefühsschwankungen, joint pain but only when it is cold. I have already gained 7 kg in weight, that bothers me a lot. From time to time I am Depressed and Aggressive. I can live well with that, but not with the increase in weight, that still makes me crazy. I often have sleep problems as well. I would prefer to take nothing more. With the removal of the ovaries, I thought I need tamoxifen no longer take, but unfortunately it was not so. I’m totally draughty about my weight, and my gynecologist’s statement is just that, that’s normal.

    Tamoxifen for Breast-op

    12 years ago had DCIS and a surgery with breast restoration (implant). After 12 years, just a replacement part was due. At the OP a few cells DCIS (Grade1) were found; another postoperative surgery with a slightly larger margin. No absolute certainty that now really all cells were caught. So tamoxifen. I took the first tablet 4 weeks ago and was happy for the first time because I did not have any physical complaints like hot flashes or muscle aches. But then I noticed after 1 -2 weeks that I was somehow funny. I got out of bed in the morning only with difficulty, was driveless, dazed and somehow not quite there. In 14 days by bike had 4 near-accidents, but luckily all went out well. I think behind the wheel I would have been a danger to the public. After three weeks I just cried and decided to stop tamoxifen. Now after a week without tamoxifen I’m fine again. In the last few days I have dealt intensively with the topic; tamoxifen only reduces the likelihood of relapse by a few percent and that’s just not worth it to me. I am now 60 and have 10 more years to enjoy life. With tamoxifen I would just be a howling bunch of tears; For that I would (maybe?) live a few years longer. I’m assuming that a DCIS recurrence will be detected in time and then operated on.
