I am almost exactly 1 year out from my last chemo treatment and am currently on tamoxifen. A couple weeks ago, I noticed my face getting oily as it used to get right after a chemo treatment. Also, for the last two days, I have a really unpleasant taste in my mouth--the same post-chemo taste I used to get after a treatment. It's so unpleasant that I've actually been nauseous for that time. Now this evening, I even "smell it." My doctor told me it would be a good year before the chemo worked its way out of my body, but could my symptoms be from that? Or has this happened to anyone on tamoxifen? I have to wait the weekend before getting my doc's opinion, and I thought this might be a good place to ask in the meantime. I would be grateful for any advice you could give me to this question.
