Discussions that mention tamoxifen

Cancer: Breast board


My sister had Stage 1 and Stage 0 BC. no lymph involvement. She is 42. She opted for a double mastectomy. Oncologist said to do chemo (4 rounds) and tamoxifen. She just wants to do tamoxifen. Her tumor was estrogen pos, but negative for something else (they said that was good). She goes for her PET scan Tuesday.
I am sick with worry.
Did anyone have the same and opt for just the tamoxifen?
She seems to think the chemo only helps her chances of it not returning by 5% (based on some studies she found).
Thank you for your responses and hope you are well.
my mother did just tamoxifen in her left breat she had a 9 year sucess rate on the rt breast she was just 1 month shy of a 5 year sucess rate when she died . its something you need to ask a lot of questions about my mom was 69 when her breast cancer was discovered and 80 at her death.
