I am on a 1 month break from tamoxifen as per my oncologist because I was having so many awful side affects & he is going to test my blood to see if I am in menopause & if I am he can give me something else. I had a hysterectomy (only uterus removed) because I had adenomyosis 6 months before being diagnosed with BC. Anyway, I had severe hot flashes the first 2 months of taking tamoxifen & then they stopped. Then came other side affects that I am really having problems tolerating. Now I am 3 weeks off of tamoxifen & I am getting hot flashes & major mood swings. I was wondering if this has happened to anybody else after stopping the tamoxifen or am I actually in menopause?
