    I had DCIS also. Had lumpectomy, 28 radiation treatments. Now Oncologist wants me to take Tamoxifen. Did you take this drug? Any side effects?

    Thanks for sharing your "Decision Point". Going to see Oncologist next week. I'll get her opinion too. But you said what I suspect my final decision will be.
    Thanks again for you input.

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): Needed a second surgery to get 'clear margins'.

    Side Effects (Hot flashes): Already have extreme hot flashes. Will they get worse if I take Tamoxifen?

    Decision Point (Need to decide if I should take Tamoxifen.): My research doesn't make me feel the benefits outweigh the risk of stroke, blood clots, uterine cancer.
