    tamoxifen, uterine hyperplasia & multilocular ovarian cyst
    laramin posted:
    Diagnosed with BC last year, had single mastectomy, 4 mos of chemo and 33 radiation. On Fosamax for osteoporosis and tamoxifen (for ER+). I had cramping both on abdomen/pelvis and leg last month so ONC NP had me stop tamoxifen and go for pelvic ultrasound. Sure enough cramping went away. But I went to OB today for annual pap and asked if she can check the results. And she did and she found that I have thickening of the uterus/hyperplasia and found cysts on both ovaries. She seemed very concerened and asked if I wanted to do biopsy so of course I said as soon as possible. She also asked for CA 125 blood test for the ovaries. Im in shock bec I have only taken tamoxifen for 3 mos....Has anyone had the same issue with tamoxifen? I am very shocked with this...and now I have to wait for the results...nerve wracking,,,

    Unfortunately I have no information or answers, but did want to let you know that I can only imagine how scarey this time is...Limbo is not a nice neighborhood!

    Please know that you will be in my thoughts that all goes well and the worry was unnecessary. Please take care.
