Thanks you three for all the wonderful words and encouragement!
Now, I have to say (sarcastically) Thanks A LOT for the news about tamoxifen!
Ding dang it, I was hoping to avoid that stuff. Not that I really have any reason not to want to take it. But I guess because of the unknown. I can't seem to get very much info on what to expect from it. Maybe I should look in Dr. Love's Breast Book again. But I don't remember reading much about it there. Anybody have any insight to give or a book to recommend?
I will (grudgingly) take it like a good girl if I have to. I just thought I might be able to get away from it with the hyster. Oh well. I guess I've got to do what I've got to do. Like the rads, I can do it with all your help.
Thanks again and hugs,
Mia- I too was not happy to take Tamoxifen, but I have had little to no side effects. I am approaching the end of my 5th year (about 6 weeks left!) and have gained about 20-25#. I do not eat right, but walk every day, and I have wondered if the walking helped keep the weight gain to a "minimum". I joined Curves last month too, figuring it may help.
And all of us are different, so no telling what side effects you'd have or not.
