Yes my onco said that is a side effect of tamoxifen and puts us at a higher risk of uterine cancer hence the more frequent checkups down there.

I recently went for my 4 year check up and told my Dr. that I have been very fatigued lately and how every bone in my body aches when I move. She sent me for a bone scan and they called me today and want to do some additional tests because there are 2 suspicious spots on my spine. Is it likely that it could spread after 4 years and a double mastectomy.

I've spoken to attorneys who tell me I don't have a case. I would like to… read more
