Tamoxifen for Ovarian Cancer
2010july posted:
My Mothers Oncologist just put her on Tamoxifen for Ovarian Cancer. She completed chemotherapy in July and by November a small tumor showed up in her peritoneum, where the cancer was before. Her CA125 has been rising also. Since she is 88 years old and her magnesium is only 1.1 the oncologist said no chemo right now since the tumor progression is small. The oncologist said that in elderly patients he has had some degree of success slowing tumor growth with Tamoxifen. I am wondering if anyone else is taking Tamoxifen and what your experience has been. Except for the cancer my Mom is in great shape and living independently.
Thank You!
