Triple negative and oestrogen positive

ames2023 Member Posts: 1

Hi all,

I am hoping someone can help.

I was diagnosed with invasive, aggressive, triple negative breast cancer in May 2023 with some micrometastasis in 3 out of 4 lymph nodes.

Have had surgery, chemo and radiation therapy. Apparently 5% of the cancer was oestrogen positive and my oncologist if leaving the option to take the Tamoxifen up to me.

Unsure what to do? I am thinking no? Can someone who has been in this situation please help?

Thanks so much.

    Up to you but I would probably try it and if the side effects were bad then give it up with no guilt whatsoever.
