Hi all, I have been having a hard time with first tamoxifen then anasrazol. both have given me very bad joints and lots of other side effects including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. I also had an Endometrial Ablation last year to deal with the really heavy bleeding from tamoxifen.
I have now decided that I have had enough of pills and injections. got very emotional at oncology today.
I have decided that mybest choice is to have an oophorectomy. I am 41 (37 when dx ER + HER +)
What I would like t know is how long did it take to ave the op after being referred.
Also how did you get on?
Any advice is gratefully recieved.
