I'm so glad I found this thread. I've been reconsidering taking Tamoxifen for a few weeks now. I started taking Tamoxifen in May 2011 and since then, my triglycerides and cholesterol has gone sky high and I just had an abnormal pap. I have an appointment with a gyno tomorrow to do another pap and they're talking about scraping my uterus since Tamoxifen can cause uterine cancer. I also found out that Tamoxifen can cause high cholesterol and triglyceride numbers.
My onc offered me the option to have a hysterectomy before I started taking the Tamoxifen, even though I caught my BC early, but I had just turned 40 years old, I had already had surgeries, chemo and rads and I just couldn't handle the thought of yet another surgery.
I'll be checking out all these links. Many blessings to all of you!
