Sorry about the periods Vampeyes and Rah2464 I was diagnosed at 50 but had regular periods up until chemo started. I’m 52 now. No periods for the last 18 months (10 on tamoxifen). My gyn has been pretty good with testing and info on menopause. Hopefully, yours can shed some light on your marathon periods.
Karinna, sorry you are struggling with the meds. Perhaps you needed a longer weaning off period since you were on the Effexor for so long. I would go back and ask your doctor for help. You shouldn’t have to feel miserable.
Thanks for the encouragement Msphil! Congrats on 24 years.
I have random aching and discomfort on my rib cage and abdomen. Not everyday and it is more discomfort than pain. CT and ultrasounds showed nothing on my liver, ribs or anything else in that area. That is good but still doesn't explain my discomfort.
My ultrasound did find, however, that my endometrium is 19mm thick and I will need another D&C after just having one in March. I'll be Switching from tamoxifen to Aromasin next week since obviously it is doing something to my uterus. Hopefully, the joint pain won't be too bad. I had no side effects from tamoxifen that bothered me untouchable l they said my uterine was thickened again
