Post menopausal women - side effects after stopping Tamoxifen?

Espoir Member Posts: 2

Happy New Year everyone!

After my breast cancer diagnosis in 2016 at the age of 53, I tried all three AIs but was unable to tolerate them.

I ended up taking Tamoxifen and am nearing my completion date. For other postmenopausal women who have competed treatment with Tamoxifen, would you please share any positive/negative things you noticed after stopping treatment?

    I haven't completed treatment yet, but I have taken 2-long breaks. The first break was for 6-weeks when I had a hysterectomy, and the 2nd was 12 weeks before and after knee surgery. I felt great each time.

    I tried them all too, couldn’t tolerate any of them, including tamoxifen. Haven’t noticed anything different, the joint pain is gone. Just one pesky hotflash about 2am every night. No weight gain or loss. Just nothing different.
