    I had stage 1 breast cancer and because there was more than one spot they did a mastectomy. Thankfully I did not have to have chemo but I took tamoxifen for 10 years. I didn’t have any side effects from the tamoxifen. I have heard others have, but I was fortunate and had none. I can truly say that I lived exactly like I did prior to my cancer diagnosis. That was in 2005 and (knock on wood) I have not had a a cancer recurrence.

    My friend was on it for 30 years, no side affects whatsoever. She died of old age.
