Well the result from appointment today was good. Surgeon has managed to get all the cancer out, but I will still have to take tamoxifen daily for 5 years which I started today, and will be given a date to start radio therapy soon. Will be having this daily for 3 weeks. Surgeon advised me not to work as side effect from radio therapy will be excessive tiredness plus cant lift due to them taking out some lymph nodes from under the left arm.
Lump was stage 1, grade 2.
Had booked to go to China and Malaysia before I found out about this cancer, so asked if I would be ok to fly end of October and surgeon said shouldnt be a problem and radio therapy should be finished by then. One of the side effects from the tamoxifen tablets is hot flashes so I dont think I will want to be out and about in the sun in malaysia and will be grateful for air conditioning lol.
Started taking the tamoxifen this afternoon and feel really hot already. Would that be the side effects this soon or is it the weather?
