Allen, thanks for your post yesterday regarding RT and post treatment PSA. I expect this applies to me as well after I complete my ADT. I completed my SRT in late October and have my first PSA scheduled for next month.
Grumpy E, my MO prescribed 20 mg of Tamoxifen a little less than a month ago to treat my breast swelling and tenderness which began in the middle of the fifth month of my Casodex/Avodart ADT. It seemed to stop the swelling for a while, but not yet completely. Some days they appear more swollen than others, usually in the evening. Nipples are also tender and sore occasionally.
I will be completing my six months of ADT on January 10. However, I expect my MO will have me continue taking the Tamoxifen for at least a couple more months.
