      sexy5150, no need to apologize! Who thinks clearly when undergoing treatment? Okay, maybe some do, and I'm sure you do, too. It's all scary and mind boggling. I hope more women write in about their Tamoxifen experiences. Hugs -

      Here's the essence of this for me: About one nanosecond after hearing this diagnosis I knew I didn't want to be dead. So my attitude was and is, "Bring it on". Surgery? Chemo? Whatever!!! Bring it on. Whatever it takes to stay alive. If my oncologist told me that I had to do surgery and chemo again, I would say, "Ok, let's start right now." Constipation? Nausea? They mean that I'm alive to fight. And don't forget to laugh!!! I love humor and I can make a lot of things about being a cancer patient into amusing stories. My surgery was a complete hysterectomy so I now tell people that I have the vagina to nowhere. The looks on their faces are priceless. And one more thing, an idea that was given to me by a woman who had lost her husband to brain cancer. She and I were talking and I used the phrase "battling cancer". She said, "Don't battle it, ask it to leave." And I did. At night when I feel myself drifting off to sleep, I reach inside myself and ask it to leave. You just never know what might work!

      I've been on tamoxifen for 2 1/2 years for estrogen positive breast cancer. The side effects I've noticed are very dry skin and hair, eyesight is worse, some joint pain and feeling irritated a lot. Hugs to you.
