    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

    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

    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-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.
