Hello everyone!

I have had bi-lateral mastectomy with reconstruction 2015. I have been taking Tamoxifen for two years. Side effects, we'll the usual... hot flashes and night sweats. They never go completely but are better sometimes than others. I have just had US done as have had a little spotting since a smear test. Fingers crossed!

Some achy joints but not major. I am planned to be on Tamoxifen for 10 years!

Anyone out there had similar do and uterine issues?

Just turned 52. Checked breasts with ultrasound and 3d mamography 13 months earlier which detected nothing at the time.

Would anyone who did not have a recurrence for 10 years or longer following a lumpectomy care to post their experience?

swimjames--I saw your other thread and wonder if many women who are 10 years NED are on here much. Wish there were another way for you to nudge them--I know there are so many.

(FWIW, I was 51 when I had a little ALH, 58 when I had DCIS, 60 this time with IDC.)

I was 37, last year. Had a leaky nipple for 6 mos, went to OB/Gyn and they did a mammo. It showed nothing, but she sent me to breast specialist and they did an ultrasound which showed a mass, biopsy came back as DCIS, then had breast MRI which showed 4 tumors total in left breast. We did mast, path came back as IDC, then met MO and had all the scans, which showed it was already in 3 places in my bones. Started treatments in Aug 2017.
