I'm 41 and was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer in May and have just had bilateral lumpectomies and sentinel node biopsy with just two lymph nodes removed from each armpit. I will be starting radiotherapy shortly.
I have been advised to start taking Tamoxifen, but told it is my choice whether to take it or not. The predict tool cannot be used accurately for me, as it assumes one breast cancer, I have cancer in both breasts.
Can anyone please give me any advice or their experiences of tamoxifen, and would you recommend starting immediately or letting my body heal from surgery and radiotherapy before starting?
I would really appreciate any thoughts you have on this to help me make a decision.
Thanks in advance Alice
