    I am on tamoxifen now and having hot flashes and feel like it zaps my energy. I am wondering what others are feeling when they take it.

    Decision Point (On choosing an oncologist): I started with a doctor in my area but felt that they didn't listen to m,y concerns and treat me as a equal. He was condescending and tried to placate more than discuss issues. The onco test showed I was triple negative so I went for a second opinion at Dana farber. The Dana farber dr called my local dr to say that he did not believe the onco test or that I was triple negative. Then I left 4 messages Witt the local dr to discuss but he never called me back! I switched to Dana farber, best decision ever. Advice is that if you have any question about your situation or treatment go for a second opinion!

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): I had to have two Lumpectomies then they found invasive and not clean margins. I am lucky that I had tissue to spare and the scaring is around my nipple so it doesn't show verymmuch
