Lipedema after tamoxifen


I was on Tamoxifen for 5 years. I noticed horrible cellulite on my legs weeks after starting, it forgot somewhat better after a year or so.

ibe been off tamo for almost a year, and the cellulite and fluid retention is still there. I can’t even place my purse on my lap for a minute without it leaving prints on my skin like it was there for hours pressing really hard.

I believe this is a side effect of tamoxifen. Anyone experienced anything like it? I would like to know if this is permanent or it will go away eventually

    I am not aware of lymphedema being a side effect of tamoxifen. Have you spoken with your doctor about it?
