Has anyone had bone loss while on tamoxifen after menopause? I have. I can't believe it. I see my endocrinologist in two weeks, but I'm sad.
Unrelated to BC, I have a rare bone condition which creates complicated dental issues, so any bone med that has the slightest risk of jaw necrosis is out of the question. I thought SERMs were my answer.
For years (pre-BC), I'd been taking a fairly high dose of calcium and Vit D and two years ago he recommended I reduce my supplements (since, as we know, too much of calcium can create problems too). I wonder if that is related. Or ??? (I have a few other questions/issues I plan to discuss w/ him). But any info would be appreciated. I'm only 52 and have osteoporosis in my hips (though my spine is still good, despite the loss).
