Tamoxifen 2nd time around

I had tamoxifen for 5 years with primary, have had secondaries to liver and bones for over 3 years, have just done 9 cycles of gem/carbo which has reduced tumours, what next?, has anyone had success with tamoxifen for a second time?

Hi, I tried it last year, after being on it for nearly 4 years after my primary diagnosis and coming off it at the time due to gynae side effects. I think it worked for at least 6 months, and I was on it for a year before CT scans actually showed progression (in the meantime my tumour markers had gone up, followed by pain developing in the mets areas). I am now post menopausal and it had almost no side effects for me and I had a good quality of life until the pain got to be a nuisance after about 11 months.
