Thanks Annie, sometimes you feel like you are the only one that this has happened to, and the doctors just seem to think its part of the treatment and if they make a mistake well never mind.
I'm waiting to hear from Oncology team to see what they are planning now.....
Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, I did look but couldn't see anything
I had BC in 2007, Surgery Chemo and Radio, followed by 5 years of Zoladex and Arimidex. Even though I was 38 and pre menopausal I had to go down this route as I had a blood clot in my arm (possibly result of Chemo). Finished those 5 years in July 2013 and was strongly advised to start taking tamoxifen (I had moved in the timescale and this was a new set of consultants). I queried the rationale, but was persuaded the risk of a clot was outweighed by the benefits of Tamoxifen.
Well i wish I had stuck to my guns as I was yesterday told I have a DVT in my leg! I'm very angry that this has happened, particularly as I should have been diagnosed 2 weeks ago when I first presented to A&E!!
Has this happened to anyone else? I'm going to see Haematology this afternoon to see what they recommend this time, but I am refusing Tamoxifen from here on in and hoping they see reason on warfarin......take enough drugs as a result of the BC, don't want to take any more because they screwed up!!
Any advice would be warmly welcomed
