    Tamoxifen for Metastasis; Breast cancer

    Zometa: at the first application for 3 days heavy body aches, chills, general malaise, a few days or weeks later changing complaints to bones and joints, which disappeared after 14 days again. Tip: Zometa is routinely added to 100 ml of solution within 15 minutes. For me, the side effects were significantly less after I was given the 500 ml infusion over 1.5 hours. Tamoxifen: hot flashes, hair grows only very slightly, weight gain despite permanent diet (started only after 1 year) Zoladex: as well (I can not distinguish which side effects of which drug come, since I get both at the same time)

    Tamoxifen for Breast-op

    I took tamoxifen for a maximum of 4 months. After joining the Society for Biolog. K-Abwehr in Heidelberg, I decided to go for a diet. I still have hot flashes, my period has also disappeared. Presumably, some of my mood lows on the tamoxifen account. If you want to do research in this direction, you might want to consider using Jane Plant etc. to avoid dairy products (containing hormones as pregnant cows are milked). If one already has tumor markers in the blood, one can let the success of this modified Budwig diet, at the decrease of the tumor markers control. It works, if you do not use dairy products consistently, in such different tumors as the Medulloblaston, the dangerous small cerebral tumor of the child, colon cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer and you need as I have tried even no antihormone treatment for women with breast cancer and for Men with prostate cancer is so distressing.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    After the breast op. chemo and 38 irradiations everything survived. However, the tamoxifen makes me very busy. Since taking 2.5 years ago, I have extreme bones and joint pain, there are still strong hot flashes, so that in medium-heavy work, the water just runs and sleep is completely out of the question. It takes all the strength out of everyone, which of course has an effect on my work (I’m tired fast and powerless)

I have gained weight through healthy Apettit 🙂 the stuff is really hungry …. Hot flash, I’m a lot tired and sometimes really pretty irritated. My rule is very irregular.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I have been taking Tamoxifen since July 2010. I have hot flashes mainly at night and joint pain in my legs, which are bearable. Before the start of therapy I had strong and frequent hot flashes, also during the day, which has improved since taking tamoxifen. Weight loss up to now about 5 kg. I have the feeling that my general condition has improved since starting tamoxifen therapy. However, I realized now that my fingernails splinter and my hair is not so good to style. I hope that will happen again in the course of the therapy. Otherwise, I hope the drug works.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    Hot flashes of tamoxifen in the beginning were very strong, but then significantly less. Bones u. Joint pain was bearable, I could with gymnastics, Nordic walking, swimming thermal bath, warm showers, a lot of exercise, well he wear. After taking Femara, the complaints were much stronger, in addition to thinner hair, inflammation of the mouth have increased, dry eyes. Hot flashes have gotten better, but now I’m tired faster after physical work. My bones-u. Joint pain is especially severe during rest and nocturnal awakenings. At the joint approaches I have pressure pain, can not wring out very well wipes, can not clean well, had a lumbar spine surgery after herniated disc 4 years ago. Will that get better after stopping taking Femara? What else can I do to make it more bearable except taking Diclofenac 75, which will help me well but not so often? I have to last another two years.

    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

    After taking Tamoxifen for 15 months, I am currently ready to discontinue this drug on the spot. The hot flashes are limited, worse is the total exhaustion and fatigue. Can not go 50 steps without being completely out of breath, climbing stairs is an abomination !!! Because of diabetes melitus 2, I have been trying for some time to lose weight. Unfortunately this does not succeed. In addition, there is a buildup of water in the right ankle, occasionally bone and joint pain, which I get control of with Voltaren tablets. Since the second month of use, increased vaginal discharge has occurred. Since I have a lot to do in my job and my quality of life is also very important to me, I will try to have other tablets like Fareston or Evista prescribed.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I am taking Tamoxifen 20mg since January 2010. First, I had extreme hot flashes and sweats. This has settled after about 4 – 5 months. Hot flashes rarely occur. But I suffer from severe bone pain and water retention, especially in the feet. I have totally broken fingernails. However, what I am particularly worried about is the weight gain of now about 12 kg. And my eyesight has deteriorated in the past few months. Lymphatic drainage helps with the water retention, I take homeopathic remedies for joint pain. Furthermore, I started Nordic Walking. Since then, my general condition has improved a lot.
