tamoxifen and comorbidity

I have grade 2 primary, not spread to lymph nodes. Surgery not an option due to existing life limiting thingy.
In a month my tumour (known as Dave) will be ultrasound scanned again. I’m hoping he shrinks.
Apart from pesky hot flushes and maybe a bit more tired it see ms OK but tis early days (2 mnths since diagnosis…)
Anyone els in a similar situation?

Hi Jo-on-wheels,
I’m not in the exact same boat as you but thought I would reply to give you some support. I do have a comorbidity (recurrent pneumothorax) which I had prior to breast cancer dx. They had to be really careful when I had my lumpectomy and couldn’t use much pressure with the anaesthetic gases in case it caused my lung to worsen.
I also have anxiety, depression, a history of suicidal thoughts and a few attempts, plus what the docs dxed as psychosis a few months ago, but I know to be something more sinister and health-threatening - just don’t know how to fix it as I don’t really know what it is :frowning:
Oh and I just don’t feel right/myself, esp with a raging headache, but I’m told there isn’t anything wrong. Hmmm.
Are you having chemo/radiotherapy, or just tamoxifen?
