Yep, as MK said I have had a pretty easy time on Tamoxifen. Julie and I are like echoes of each other when it comes to this discussion....I too breezed through it. My 5 years is up on June 21, in 2 1/2 weeks!! If I take all the pills I have left, I'd go till the end of the month, but I am done as done can be. I am 36 now, never skipped a period or had any mood swings. I have gained weight though, about
25# in 5 years, slowly, maybe 5-6# a year. That is why I am eager to be done, but I have tolerated it so well. My onc said that younger women tend to have an easier time on it, and the closer one is to menopause, the more likely to have problems with periods.
Tamox can cause increased growth in the uterus. For sure, some gals have had problems with it, none of us will be the same. I too was not happy to take it, was afraid of side effects. But like Julie, I was happy as a clam to be able to take it and would gladly trade the weight for the added security in fighting the cancer.
Hang in there...you may have no problems at all with this drug....
