    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-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-op

    Hello, dear Mit affected, I had in July 2013 because of a small (2 cm), but highly invasive tumor, a breast cancer op (BET) followed by radiotherapy and then take, so for almost 3 1/2 years, Tamoxifen. At first skeptical, because I had read from many sufferers about bad side effects, but also with some hope. to avoid such a recurrence. Conclusion (as far as you can tell after this time): Tamoxifen caused in me – with the exception of slight hair loss – no side effects. Therefore, on medical advice the drug should not be discontinued after 5 years, as originally planned. In the US, it is obviously recommended from the beginning to a longer intake. I agree! Because of my experience my advice therefore to all concerned: – Approach without prejudice to the treatment! – Believe in the treatment success! – Resume your normal life and leisure activities as soon as possible (or look for new, physically non-strenuous hobbies). All good wishes to all Mit affected! Margot

    Side effects: Hair loss
