For the foreseeable future, I am done with tamoxifen! Yay! Starting tomorrow, I will not be taking it. Yay!

This marks the end of my planned breast cancer treatment, which began in May of 2012. I say “planned” because as you know, plans can change based on new information. Based on today’s information, I am done!

It’s not that tamoxifen was so bad but I did take it for 5 1/2 years and although I had few observable side effects, one wonders about what goes unobserved. Bigger than that, though, is the fact that now I am only being treated for one disease, SCAD, and not two. That seems significant. In a few months, if all continues to go well, I will be able to discontinue the beta blocker I take for my heart. It contributes to fatigue. I will be happy to be finished with it and just continue taking baby aspirin for the rest of my life.

I don’t know if any of you readers out there are new breast cancer patients but if you are, do know that milestones can be achieved. We don’t know the future but the possibilities are varied and some are sweet indeed.

Peace friends,
