Should Tamoxifen be used past 10 years?
I was diagnosed with cancer in 2007. I had a mastectomy, chemo, radiation and then began Tamoxifen. I remember my oncologist saying after a couple years on it, when I asked how long, he said maybe forever. Then as time went on that changed to 10 years. So 10 years came and I was taken off. Within two years I was diagnosed with bone mets. I can’t help wondering if Tamoxifen was keeping the cancer under control. I realize over time it can be hard on the liver. But I was checked regularly for that. Thoughts or experiences?
