Because I had DCIS and a mastectomy the surgeon said I did not need an oncologist. He put me on tomoxefin and said I'd need to be on it five years. He gave me no other information on my cancer other than the fact that it was Grade 2 - 3 and some of it was quite aggressive. However, he was sure it was all contained within the breast that was removed.
My question: I have Probable MS and other autoimmune diseases and the Tomoxefin is creating havoc with me. I just found out yesterday that my cancer was Estrogen Negative. If that is the case do I need to be on the tomoxefin? My PCP didn't know and I don't see my surgeon until December. I would appreciate your input. Thank you. Dee
