The surgeon did not seem to take a lot and the incision is about 3 inches with no obvious difference. Path report showed a little DCIS so, he wants to discuss radiation and tamoxifen. I think I have already decided it is not ..."
Thanks Kathy! I have yet to fill my prescription...We discussed Tamoxifen today at work (I am a Mammo Tech!), and my coworkers sister refused to take it due to fears of the side effects. My breast cancer was ER, PR and HER2 positive, so I am willing to give it a try. Alot of my patients did fine on it for 5 years and some others couldn't handle the side effects and quit taking it. I will have to see what it does to me! My oncologist recommends it, so I will try it. Cancer is not my friend, so I will do whatever it takes to make it not reoccur!!
