Re: Back on Tamoxifen

Hi there Stuart

I can't help either, but perhaps if you post on a thread under living with secondary breast cancer you may find someone who can help answer your questions over there.

Wishing you and your wife the best.

Back on Tamoxifen

Apologies if I have posted in the wrong place but hopefully I haven't.

Vicky, my wife is stage 4 with mets in her head and various bones.
Since dx in 05 she has been on Tamoxifen, Arimidex, 6 cycles of EC, 2 cycles of vinorelbine and is just finishing her 6th cycle of taxotere. During this time she has also had 2 major back surgeries and radiotherapy to different areas as required.

Her oncologist, who has been brilliant throughout, now wants to try her on tamoxifen again. Now while I have no issue with this as he has always done the right thing for Vicky, I am curious as to what treatment options remain if this doesn't have the desired effect. (Worked for 18 months first time out).

Thank you for your thoughts & ideas,
Stuart
