I am a 16 year breast cancer survivor. I had a modified radical mastomectomy with no lymph imvolvment. I feel blessed. At the time I didnot have any further treatments. Now I am being advised to look into taking tamoxfin to reduce the risk of breast cancer in other breast. Just wondering if anyone else has taken ths long after surgery and what if any side effects. I sure don't want to gain weight and have just come off estrogen and hot flashes are back but not as bad as before. Anything else I can look forward to.
