    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I started treatment with Herceptin and Tamoxifen at the same time. This was in September 2006. Meanwhile, severe side effects have set, including joint stiffness and pain (incipient osteoporosis), tingling in both hands, brittle fingernails, mood swings. Light weight gain despite diet.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    Suffering from breast cancer in May 2008, breast conserving surgery, then 6x chemo and 37x radiation. Everything over well. Chemo with side effects, but not as bad as always is told, irradiation without side effects. Herceptin every 3 weeks with fingernail fragility and tiredness as well as bone pain and mood swings, but everything is also bearable. Without this therapy we would be worse off. I can only say to all women, do not lose heart, then everything will be fine. \

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    Mood swings especially before Christmas, I felt so bad, only crying at extreme cancer anxiety !! Eyesight has also deteriorated. When I’m up all day, I always have a weakness in my muscles in the evening, I’m more tired than I used to be. The 2 years are over in August, then comes 3 years Anastrozole. Hopefully there will not be new side effects. Bonnet Macaque

    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 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-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.
