I am 53 post meno. Diagnosed BC 2010. 2 small lumps 3mm grade 2- 4mm grade 1 with 10mm spread, 2 nodes removed clear.
3 weeks radio, and been on Tamoxifen for about 2 months. 1st month fine. Everyone is different. I have always suffered badly with ezcema, asthma, circulation problems, so my problems could be different to others.
I experienced very dry skin, cracked and bleeding heels, ezcema returned after 40 years, vag dryness and itching (drove me crazy), caught Strep B vag infection, and now suffering from piles due to constipation. Now i ask u.
My oncologist said that if i have problems with tamo, i can come off it as i have a 96% survival without taking it. So what the hell, i have not slept properly in 4 weeks due to terrible dryness and itching and Strep B. Decided today to stop Tamo.
What appreciate any advice.
