In April 2001 I was diagnosed with stage2 breast cancer. I was just 50. I had a lumpectomy and then 7 weeks of radiation. That was followed by tamoxifen for 5 years. I am wondering if any new friends out there received bubbles in their skin(forehead) from the med. I think that the tamoxifen blocked the estrogen, since my tumor was estrogen induced, but we need estrogen for good skin. I attribute the bad skin to the tamoxifen. Just curious if anyone had that happen to them also. Another thing is that I used to be much more energetic and now I cant do what I used to do. I think the tamoxifen leaves you very tired. Dont get me wrong I am so glad to be alive but I am a very curious person and question many things. Thanks KathypaperView Thread
