Tamoxifen effects

I wished to know if any one has taken Tamoxifen after a mastectomy and the side effects?

I have not been prescribed chemotherapy or radiotherapy. So I go straight into tamoxifen for 5 years. I am fit, don’t have any other health issues. 

Please do share experiences. Thank you. 

Welcome to the Breast Cancer in Men forum @Yunib  

There is a thread here forum.breastcancernow.org/t5/Breast-cancer-in-men/Tamoxifen/m-p/1414802#M45 that may well answer your questions , if not then feel free to ask away here .

I will say that Tamoxifen does affect men differently. I know of some men that have had no problems and others that have had a lot


Was the decsion not to have chemo decided by your oncologist or by you ? Did they give reasons ?
