I would have been glad to try tamoxifen or Evista for mine but MO said no, since I had a prior pulmonary embolism. Any reason they suggested the tamoxifen instead of the other? I was also offered Aromasin, but I think the others are better tolerated.

LCIS, extensive sclerosing adenosis, TAH/BSO & partial omentectomy for mucinous borderline ovarian tumor.

that is where the studies are for lcis. I really thought if I was on evista for 11 years I thought I would not have to take it again
