Hello. I had breast cancer in 2014. Mastectomy followed by chemo, radiotherapy and hormone therapy. My cancer returned in July 2017 and I had my lymph nodes removed in the left axilla. Oncology started me on Tamoxifen. I’m having flushes, which I’m coping with and weight around my middle. But recently I am having really irritated eyes and the tiredness is awful. I get breathless just going upstairs. I am 60 years old. Does anyone have similarities??
