DCIS Under 50

Hi, I'm DANI J T.

I was diagnosed with Stage 0 DCIS June of this year, and I just turned 49 in May.
I’ve had my lumpectomy and am awaiting a round of radiation in August. The Tamoxifen has already bothered me enough to take it every other day.
Does anyone else have a similar journey? I’m not accustomed to serious health issues, and I do truly hope this is the “bump in the road” everyone keeps saying it is.

Hi, I'm Betti

Talk with your team and see if there is anything else you can do, I assume you’re premenopausal?

When I was on Tamoxifen it initially made me sluggish and I gained weight. Finally I realized I had to push my self because the weight gain wasn’t helping me and managed to drop 30lbs once I established a workout routine. Felt way better after that! Good luck to you and I promise it gets easier.
