If I am having problems with Tamox hot flashes are so bad would a hysterectomy enable me to stop taking this drug and swop to another. I am pre meno and Estrogen receptive, (we think as periods stopped 18 month ago after second chemo). My mother took Tamox for five years and when she stopped taking it she got cancer back two more times. Ovaries taken away could solve my problems. Any thoughts ladies, I will ask oncol about this at my next appointment but he says us ladies blame too many ill effects on Tamox course he is a man after all............. (not counting the gentlemen out there with breast cancer) Thought I was coping very well when he suggested me taking this for TEN YEARS instead of the usual 2 - 5 I just cant do it, would be 65 when I come off.
