    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I take Tamoxifen 20mg are January, so only 6 months. In the beginning there were no side effects. After about 2 months, I got a push under the true costal arch. The liver values were ok and also when pressing by the doctor nothing conspicuous. Since the pressing did not go away I researched on the Internet and found that other women were like that. One recommended milk thistle extract as this helps the liver to detoxify. I started to take these and now the pressure is gone. For over a week now and then I now have a slight dizziness, from time to time to have the feeling of cotton in my head and I also find slight memory difficulties. If it stays with the symptoms udn not get any more, I can live with it.

    Side effects: Memory problems; Dizziness

    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.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    since I take tamoxifen no metastases have occurred but the price is high. My life has changed completely. I can not live without medication against the bone pain at all, in addition there is defeat. Driverlessness (some days I would like to crawl under the blanket only) “In the last two and a half years I have gotten so thin that I am thinking of buying a wig. In addition, there are still dizziness and gang insecurity. When I look in the mirror, then I see that I am old. your rating: recommendation as a patient you can not recommend the drug but there are only two remedies for hormone-dependent carcinomas and they are quite different. I took femara 3 months and then discontinued because of intolerable side effects. So only tamoxifen remained.
