: my mom is 76. she has breast cancer. she's had a radical mastectomy and hard core chemo. her oncologist just put her on tamoxifin.
: the side effects have been quite severe -- weight gain and extreme memory loss.
: i know weight gain is common -- but memory loss? can anyone offer any insight?
My mother had a breast cancer lumpectomy and has been taking tamoxifin and hence has had extreme memory loss too. Is this common and what can be done?
