Hormone therapy - Booprim

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Invasive (Infiltrating) Ductal Carcinoma . Posted on October 15, 2012 View this journey (7 Experiences)

Taking Tamoxifen supposedly reduces my chances for cancer reoccurrance (in the same area) down to 'normal'. Good deal. I was peri-menopausal, but Tamoxifen threw me right into menopause. Hot flashes are so weird! For me it's just not being able to regulate my temperature at all. Hot, cold, hot, cold. My dentist encouraged me to use a perscription strength flouride toothpaste as well as mouthwash as many women going through menopause have mouth problems (who knew spit and hormones were related?). Also, my eye doctor encouraged me to use eye drops to keep my eyes from drying out. Everything is doable, it's just adjusting to the new norm.

Easy to Do: Agree
Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
