Hi, thanks for your reply - always reassuring to know there's others in the same boat!
Yes I think I'm on them for 10 years so just another 9 years & 4 months to go!!
I have had Relonchem, Wockhardt & now Mylan.
I had my first mammogram last week since my diagnosis & I think I get invited in by the Breast care nurses for the results & a general chat about how I am. I'll ask about periods while I'm there & let you know. If I'm making it up & I don't get invited in I'll ask next time I see the gp for a repeat prescription (September / October ish I think)
I had a mastectomy & reconstruction in September last year. I was fortunate enough not to have chemotherapy or radiotherapy, started taking Tamoxifen in October.
First 2 months periods were as normal timing wise but only lasted 3 days rather 5 - bonus!! Then I had one 10 days late, then a couple on time then one 18 days late then nothing. It's been 9 weeks since the last one. Not that I miss it (annoying having to carry stuff round just in case!) but I do get stomach cramps & think here we go but nothing. I don't have hot flushes (fortunately!) I'm 47 - is this likely to be menopause starting? Tamoxifen? Or just my body being weird? I've had fairly regular periods since I was 12, cycles got slightly shorter after each pregnancy.
I had slightly achy joints & v dry eyes when I first started taking Tamoxifen but I'm feeling fine on them, just wondering anyone else has the same?
