Tamoxifen - yes or no?
I am back here again looking for HELP. If anyone can help me - please feel free to give me your input. I have been dx with LCIS (left breast) DCIS (right breast). Three surgeries - several biospies - radiation - now dx with fibro. I stopped taking the Tamoxifen due to pain, which my onocologist throught also. Now that I have fibro - should I go back on the Tamoxifen. Who has decided not to take Tamoxifen? What would be the outcome? My Pain Management doctor thinks the Tamoxifen had a part with causing the fibro. Now taking nicodin, muscle relax., pain patch. I really do not want to take Tamoxifen - it's a poison going through your body. I do not need anymore pain. It's unbearable. I don't want to live like this anymore. Please help me. I'll be waiting. Everyone has been get here - great support team. Thanks, Kathy

Tamoxifen just inhibits the production of Estrogen .... not really a poison.  Have you discussed switching to one of the other med.s available with your Oncologist ?? If you choose not to take Tamoxifen you are certainly within your rights but you are increasing your risk of recurrance.  It is 100% your decision and many women have also chosen that path.     Regards ....
