I always wondered how safe these medications were, when they have been well known to cause breast cancer. I had Stage 2 breast cancer in august of 2007. I had surgery and 6 and a half weeks of radiation, I would not let them do chemo. I also was given tamoxifen, of which I will not take. I had all my labs done and I am feeling great. All that I am doing is having a positive outlook, and I use Flax seed everyday. It is amazing what this has done for my energy. My doctor said that this is not a replacement, and has not been proven to work, well it has for me, and all my sisters. And I feel wonderfull, no hot flashes, no menstral cramps or pain, and no new lumps in remaining breast, so something is working. I wish all of you luck in you battle, is does get better.
