Diagnosed BC 2010:
I had lumpectomy which confirmed 2 IDC lumps, 3mm - 4mm having 10mm spread. 2 nodes removed which were clear.
I had 3 weeks radio, and then started tamoxifen which has been a nightmare, my oncologist said i had a 96% success without it, so today after 4 weeks of agonising pain, very dry skin, ezcema after 40 years, terrible vag dryness which resulted in a strep B infection, constipation u name it - have decided today to stop taking it.
I also have been soaking up any and all info, and would interested like jonsav to learn more on soya and breast cancer, I was also told flaxseed oil, figs, grapefruit and plenty of green veg.
I have a friend who is doing alternative medicine after discovering BC. She was horrified when i told her i had agreed to radio, and said it is never to late to de tox. She suggested 5 kelp tablets daily to de tox. dont take tamo, - start with erradicating everything none to man that is harmless. This seems a life changing decision (I love coffee, shampo, washing clothes, moisturisers, dont smoke or drink now, veggie, low fat).
Could anyone give advice to stopping tamoxifen.
