Hi Jal7777

A very dear friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer, had lumpectomy and nodes removed of which I believe at least one was positive. She took Tamoxifen for 5 years - couldn’t wait to come off it because of the side-effects but stuck with it. She was 79 when diagnosed and celebrated her 88th birthday earlier this year!
