Invasive ductile breast cancer: What should I expect?

I finished radiation 4/30 and started Tamoxifen 5/10. Since having to stop birth control and go on the Tamoxifen I feel like a teenager again, in a bad way. Acne, awful cramps, emotional, unpredictable and heavy periods. There was mention of ovary suppression with injections, but my oncotype score was only 12. Has anyone else had a similar experience and/or done the injections or had their ovaries removed?

Genea, I see you didn't get a response to your question about ovary suppression. I suggest you start a new discussion specific to this topic in the Breast Cancer group. It's a good topic.

@sandyrob, how did your appointment go? Will you have radiation and/or hormonal therapy?

I'm 51, diagnosed earlier this year and after lumpectomy and radiation started zoladex injections for ovarian suppression with an AI. The shots are once a month. I'll be on them until natural menopause – maybe two years. I don't mind the shot, they numb the skin before they give them so you really don't feel them – but they are in the stomach.
