I am having a hysterctomy on Sept. 10; my Dr. feel the cancer is due to the Tamoxifen I was on for 7 years, following a mastectomy. I was 46 at the time, and now I am 62. Has any one had this problem with Tamoxifen??

Hi Brighton!!

I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis, and of your mastectomy.

I see that there is a current thread on the Pre-op board now where the ladies are talking about Tamoxifen today. I don't know if it will help or not but thought you may want to see it in addition to the replies you may get here. Just click on this link and it will bring up the current posts that are on the pre-op board.

Maern, the lady who started this thread is having her surgery 2 days after yours.


I hope this helps, and I wish you the very best with your surgery, and please let us know how you are doing.
Keeping you in my prayers,

Hi, Yes, I had a hysterectomy for uterine cancer. After the surgery the surgeon said it was tamoxifen induced. She said it was what she sees in women on tamoxifen. I was lucky to have caught it as I had no symptoms. I was on tamoxifen 4.4 years. The plan had been to be on it for 5 years which is the norm now. I guess they used to keep people on even longer. They act like it's a benign drug but it's really not.
Anyway I had a LAVH/BSO 8 months ago and I'm fine. The cancer was staged 1B. If you have any questions, fire away.

Hi Suski; Saw that you're from Brooklyn, so that created an immediate bond!
I replied to another Hyster Sister about Tamoxifen. I told her, as you mentioned, that Drs don't seem concerned with the side effects of that drug. My gynecologist is very excited about the new one that will not affect the uterus. Too bad it wasn't around when I had my mastectomy 16 years ago. But since it has been that long, I should be grateful.
There are so many young women afflicted with breast cancer now. And because of the treatment, seem to be having to undergo hysterectomies. What a shame. You gals shouldn't have to think about those things at such an age!
