i've had exactly the same treatment as you regarding lumpectomies, rads and tamoxifen. It will be 2 years in march that i will have been on tamoxifen and i'm fed up to the back teeth with it. Hot flushes i can deal with, it's no big deal for me. I'm in constant pain downstairs. Discharge is revolting and im ruining every single pair of white pants i have. I wear pads constantly to avoid changing knickers at work as dampness due to discharge is a problem. I don't feel inclined in the least to have sex, i started horse riding at the beginning of the year and only went about 6 times as the pain was too much. I bleed in between cycles too and have developed cysts and fibroids which add to the pain.
Not much consolation am I? I would love to know what alternatives are out there without making me even more grouchy than i am now!
