Veteran cancer warriors, give me advice. Dx in June, DCIS lumpectomy surgery in July, multicatheter interstitial brachytherapy in early September, began tamoxifen early November. I'm done. But I keep researching things online for hours a day: side effects of tamoxifen, recurrance rates for DCIS, etc. My husband would prefer I sit and watch TV with him in the evenings but here I am on the computer. Help. Am I supposed to be back to normal yet? Is this my 'new' normal? I don't like to be this way.
