Grumpy E -
See my previous post in one of your threads regarding Casodex and gynocomastia.
I have been taking 20 mg of Tamoxifen daily for a little over a month now and will be finishing my six months course of Casodex and Avodart ADT this week. Although my breast enlargement has not completely resolved it is not any worse. I take my dose of Tamoxifen right before bed and I do notice more firmness in the morning. By evening I notice sometimes that some swelling has returned. Now that I will be finishing my ADT I hope to be seeing better results soon. I have read that the earlier one starts the Tamoxifen therapy the better the results may be.
I will not see my MO until late February although I expect he will have me continue the Tamoxifen therapy if the swelling has not completely resolved by then.
