Hi GingerBun. I've noticed browsing the threads on Hormone Treatment there are lots of ladies doing different things with drugs - just wondered whether you might find someone with some experience of this there? They may not visit the Surgery area much. Best of luck!
Bumping this up for Gingerbun. (with changed title, to see if anyone has experience of tamoxifen before surgery and how effective it was )
Just wanted to welcome you to the forum it is a wonderful place with lots of help and support to ladies on this journey. I am sure that one of the ladies on here will reply to your specific question shortly.
I am new to this forum, I was diagnosed 6 weeks ago with stage 1 breast cancer. At my last appointment I was told my lump was quite big 5cm X 5cm and would need a mastectomy alternatively take tamoxifen and hope the size reduces to allow for a lumpectomy.
We opted to try the tablets in the first instance as I have nothing to lose from trying, other than delaying the process - I can however change my mind at any point.
I would just like to know if anyone has had any success with this?
