    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.

    I am taking tamoxifen for 2 years now after a hormonal breast cancer surgery. I can not report anything negative except that my eyes have deteriorated. But that is bearable with appropriate glasses. As I do a lot of sports (3 x per week gym, 2 x dancing) I feel like I’m in top shape. I have neither bone problems nor do I feel cut off. However, I pay close attention to my weight. I weigh myself in the morning and in the evening. I am 51 years, 170 tall and weigh 65 kilos. I lost 5 kg with tamoxifen. I have to take Tamoxifen for another 3 years and hope that I will feel so good afterwards.

    Side effects: Weight loss; Vision loss

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I can only experience to the contrary that I lost 8kg in 18months without change of diet, did not have any more mastopathies which were very painful and after 15 months the period did not materialize, which I found very positive. Disadvantage is the joint and bone pain (where I possibly tamoxifen absetze) because I work in amb. Nursing work, where much physical use is verlant. Hitzwallung I did not feel annoying.
