I had stage one last year, lumpectomy, chemo, and radiation. After all that - did not want to take tamoxifen. Starting to feel like I made a mistake. I'm not overweight, eat pretty good, exercise moderately and drink about 4 glasses of wine a week. When i read the side effects of Tamox. it sounded like PMS 24/7. Any thoughts?

I am sure you could talk to your onc and take it or one of

too late if you wanted to.
