: I am wondering if there are others out there who have had to face the decision of taking tamoxifin or not. I would like to hear from you. I took it for a couple of months and I stopped because I didn't want to be one of it's victims. The information on it said that at least one person out of so many had died and it could cause uteran cancer. I am now in my fifth year and doing great. I'm told tamoxifin works for only 5 years anyway so what do you do after that? Please write and let me know your stories. Thank you Kathy.
My mum Karoliene had taken tamoxifin for a few years after having breast cancer in 1993. She is no longer needing to take it and it is now 7 years since the operation and feels fine.
