If all goes as planned in 5 mths I should be taken OFF tamoxifen. Seems like I just started it-and now down to months left..!

It's always exciting to reach a milestone in treatments.  I just started on tamoxifen in early August.  So far it is going quite well.  My oncologist plans to switch me to a different drug midway through the five-year plan.

I would think that if this is it, as far as your treatments, then you will really need to celebrate.

Since I'm in my first yr of Tamoxifen, the 5 yr mark seems far away.  I'm sure you're right about the time going fast though.  I wonder if I'll be as afraid to come off as I was to start it!  Linda

When looking back the time is short but you have had your share of up's and down's over the years.

May the next 5 months fly by.
