Congratulations on finishing your radiation treatment! Isn't it a nice feeling to get up in the morning and know you don't have to have a treatment? I did take tamoxifen for 2.5 years out of the 5, and I quit from the increased hot flashes and also because I was estrogen negative and it was questionable at least in my mind how effective the treatment would be. I weighed comfort against benefit and found to me that dropping the tamoxifen was the right thing to do. I have been a survivor for 7+ years. I did not notice any weight gain during the time I took the drug. I was, however, extremely exhausted 3 weeks after the radiation treatments stopped, so don't be surprised if that happens.
Life should not be lived with the sole purpose of arriving at the grave in a perfect and well preserved body. Rather, you should skid in sideways totally used up, thoroughly worn out and loudly proclaiming, "Wow!
What a ride!"
