I've Finished 5 years of Tamoxifen!

I took my last Tamoxifen pill yesterday and I'm happy about that. I didn't think I could make it through the entire 5 years. It was really a struggle and balancing act to take a daily pill that aggravated my throat/stomach without destroying it. I've been taking a lot of PPI medication which I hope I can decrease soon. I'm not sure what to expect now but I hope that side effect goes away along with others. I've got some blood tests that became out of range about 6 months after starting Tamoxifen and continued to be abnormal all the way through the 5 years. I hope those reverse and return to normal.

Has anyone ended Tamoxifen recently and can tell me if their side effects went away? And how long it took?

I hope everyone is doing well.
