    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I’ve been taking Tamoxifen 20 for almost 1 year, plus I’ve been following Herceptin treatment for 1 year …. I’ve had a lot of bone and back pain and itching all over my body, and of course a few pounds. I’m still alive and I’m glad that there are any medicines for prevention …

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I think I have everything there is to side effects. Hizblasungen but the finest. I have gained about 25 kg, water accumulation spread over the whole body, extreme in the hands and legs. Shortness of breath is also nothing extraordinary not only under stress. Some of my joints hurt all day. At 49, I feel like an old woman. Even my eyes have changed / worsened and burn constantly. Sleep in one piece, again a whole night, would be great, but not more. Add to that fatigue and fatigue. The meantime extreme hair loss has improved a bit, but the hair is brittle and dull. Fragile are my fingernails. So I think I could go on. If I was not that stubborn, I’d have dropped that stuff long ago.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    After the third breast surgery and removal of the right breast, I was prescribed FEMARA. I take this medicine now half a year. After a short time of taking already significant increase in body weight. Listlessness, depression, memory failure, skin rash pimples. Listlessness in the sex life. The quality of life has diminished considerably. Now, after talking to my gynecologist and contacting an oncologist, try to get another solution or medicine. In the last five years of my breast cancer, I took tamoxifen and had virtually no side effects. 28/05/2011

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    After breast-conserved surgery, chemo and radiation, I got zoladex and tamoxifen prescribed for 1 year from July 2008. In the first year I took between 5 and 8 kilos, sporty was almost nothing. Every staircase was a pain, I ran out of steam, housework takes twice as long and jogging (previously 3x weekly 1-1 1/2 hours) was unthinkable. Since taking I am struggling with sleep disorders (max. 3 hours sleep per night), fatigue and hot flashes. After finishing with Zoladex it was at least physically up again a bit. My athletic motivation is on the rise. Weight problems (especially stomach), deterioration of visual acuity, hair loss and brittle fingernails. Have a health practitioner visited and so at least the tiredness and hot flashes have improved. I’m really thinking of whether I still go through the remaining 2 years of tamoxifen intake!

    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.

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.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    After chemotherapy and radiation I started tamoxifen. Since then, my eyes have become much worse. In addition, I suffer from edema, weight gain, numb feet and fingers, hair loss, vaginal dryness and bone pain. I hope that over time it will be possible to work normally again. At the moment, I struggle to do anything for a few hours a day.

    Tamoxifen for Overweight

    After my breast cancer in 2007, I received radiation and took tamoxifen, did not need chemo, but either zoladex or ovarian removal, opted for ovarian removal. Tamoxifen was well received at the time, and for the first two years, the tamoxifen had to go to sleep in the evening, because the side effects were extreme, night sweats, rashes, palpitations, extreme nausea, water retention, and an enormous weight gain. Now after three years I had to sell the tamoxifen, I’m sitting so full of water that I can not get rid of it. Was today at the gynecologist, because the water presses on my joints and it hurts, have reported that the oncologist advised me against the adoption of tamoxifen. Yes, now I have to take blood and searching begins. Weight gain about 30 kg

    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)
