Tammy, I asked my onc why should I take tamoxifen if my ovaries are out (taken out 9 mo after the bc due to cysts).
She said that the adrenal gland puts out a small amout of estrogen, so I still had to do the 5 yrs. I don't know about
any other situations though.
Hope this at least tells you something....=)
It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth -- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.
