DCIS Under 50
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.
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.
