Hi, I am new to all of this. I had a partial mastectomy three weeks ago and am facing radiation and Tamoxifen. What can I expect?

    The waiting has been the worst for me. Radiation just started today. Tamoxifen started 3 weeks ago. Not sleeping as good as normal and a little weight loss. For the most part, all good considering. Good luck.

      FYI I was having trouble sleeping and my doc gave. Me low dose of Valium at bedtime. Works great . Might want to talk to you dr as you need rest to recover. Hugs

    Hi there. I just finished my radiation treatments. At first it's a lot but will be over before you know it. You will get a tired for sure and have a sunburn. I also stared my tamoxifen. I heard so much bad stuff about it I was really afraid to take it but with the support of my loving husband I did and really not that bad. Hot flashes, weight loss and some aches and pains but not terrible. I found now that the anticipation of everything is the worst part so far. I pray that God bless you and protect you as you go through your journey. Hugs to you! P.s. healthy eating and exercise really help.

      I think things sometimes are what you make them. I got to know the gals in radiation and we actually had a lot of laughs and a couple tears together too. I was afraid before but as I look back it was a life experience I will never forget. You are...

      I think things sometimes are what you make them. I got to know the gals in radiation and we actually had a lot of laughs and a couple tears together too. I was afraid before but as I look back it was a life experience I will never forget. You are going to do great. I feel it:)
