Tamoxifen Short and Long Term Effects



I took Tamoxifen for 5 years and off for one year now.  I have experienced extreme hot flashes, night sweats, extreme edema in both legs/feet for three years that I was told not due to Tamoxifen and now high blood pressure/heart rate issues.  Anyone else?

    Hi Heidilex43

    I am sorry you have had these physical issues!  I would be interested to know also, since I had my mastectomy 2 weeks ago and going to the Oncologist Thursday to talk about hormone therapy.

    It would be good to hear from others since this seems to be a protocol after breast cancer surgery.  I do not have any of those symptoms right now so that would not be something I would be interested in if this is the case!
