Learning About Breast Cancer
I am almost 2 years out, after stage 2 - triple positive. I underwent chemo, lumpectomy, and radiation. My oncologist told me that I will be on tamoxifen, 20mg, for 15 years. I am currently 43 years old. I have periods of extreme fatigue and the memory issue's seem to be daily. This is frustrating because people think that once the treatment's are over and the diagnosis is positive that all should be as it was pre-cancer. One could not understand unless you have gone through all the treatments and are taking tamoxifen everyday! God Bless all oncologists and researcher's that dedicate their whole life to this disease. To all going through breast cancer now, remain positive and pray. Everything will work out in time. Although, the fatigue is a bit frustrating still. TAMOXIFEN.
