I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Grade 3 Ductal Carcinoma at age 39. Had chemotherapy first, then lumpectomy, then radiation, then tamoxifen. Been on and off Tamoxifen since July 2007.

I had stage 2 breast cancer, had bi-lateral mastectomy, chemo. Started taking Tamoxifen 3 months ago. Hot flashes for first month then no side effects at all. My periods stopped during my chemo and came back this past week. I'm am concerned why they have come back and now considering hystorectomy. Going to the doctor soon to have questions answered.

Comment:
I've been on Tamoxifen for 2 1/2 years for Stage 3 Breast Cancer following bi-lateral mastectomy, chemo and radiation.

I have terrible back pain and nerve pain (not sure if it is attributable to Tamoxifen). Some vaginal discharge but most of my symptoms of leg cram ... Show Full Comment
