I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 1997, it has been nearly 5 years. I was on tamoxifen until Feb 2002. I am not on Arimidex because in November 2001 I found out I have uterine cancer. It was caused by the tamoxifen.
I had a complete hysterectomy at the end of November and I am back at work.
I feel afraid. My mother had breast cancer, then thyroid cancer and passed from lung cancer. My husband and daughter are very supportive, but I cant tell them how afraid I am that the cancer will come back again. I am waiting for the results of my first of quarterly pap smears. Has anyone else experienced this? My doctor has advised my to begin taking an antidepressant. I dont think I want to, but I dont want to feel like this anymore. I want to be happy and feel well.
