Hi I too am premenopausal,41 and recently had a mastectectomy 12-12-06 for dcis. My Oncologogist has given me a script for evista as well. I haven't started it yet but plan to in the near future. I haven't found anyone else else that is taking it that is premenopausal have you? I know the side ffects are suppose to be more tolerable than with tamoxifen and the results similar.
I have been to that site and others but haven't had luck finding others that are premenopausal on Evista. There are many that are post. I probably will go ahead ahead and take it
as I can't really fnd any big reasons not to other than lack of official clinical trials. It sure would be nice to find someone in my shoes however.
