Last pet scan in Aug, showed no new cancer. I have no side effects, some hot flashes. I feel really good, no pain at all. Prayers to you.

    oncologist told me to stop tamoxifen after 5 years, as my onco type test said my reocurrence is minimal. Has anyone stopped taking tamoxifen. Did you do it gradually, or cold turkey? Side effects?

      Latonya,
      I don't quite understand the question. If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, it is because the cells were found and identified. If you are talking about breast cancer that has metastasized to other parts of the body, there are baseline tests that would either identify those area's or be suspicious. I hope this helps, take care, Sharon

      I have saline implants. It is the only way I could get the size I wanted, and cleavage. I'm very happy with them. What is it that you would like to know? Prayers to you.
