Hi. My mother was recently diagnosed with colon and breast cancer. She is turning 67 this April and will start her chemo as soon as she heals from her colon resection. Her medical oncologist will put her to Tamoxifen for the breast and Xeloda for the colon. I would like to know the side effects for these 2 medications if anyone here is taking them currently. Also, I heard Aromacin? is better than Tamoxifen? Is this true? A family friend of ours mentioned it to me. She said that Tamoxifen made her breast cancer moved to her uterus. My mom has already both breast and colon. I don't want anything more new for her. We all are heartbroken of this news. Please share some infos please.
