It's Aliza - we've chatted before. I'm on Tamoxifen. It's not making life easy (as far as sex goes-that's for sure). It's a bummer because I was supposed to get married in December and I had a mastectomy instead. I was spared chemo (because of genetic Oncotype testing - I scored very low, so I didn't need it), but being ER+, I needed Tamoxifen.
Believe me when I say I'd love to stop taking it, but I'm afraid of a recurrence, especially not having had chemo, so I'm going to continue taking it. I may change Oncologists because my doc was very rude to me this past week when I went in to see him re localized HRT. I may even change hospitals, but I'll probably stay on the Tamoxifen because I'm frightened not to do so.
Perhaps if I'd had chemo, I'd do otherwise, but in my situation, Tamoxifen's where I'm at.
Wishing you ell no matter what choice you make!
