Can I take Graviola with Tamoxifen?

I am diagnosed with breast cancer stage 2 six months ago and had bilateral mastectomy and after that prescribed with Taomxifen-Nolvadex. I am taking two tablets per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, meaning 20mg per day. My CA is positive in progesteron and estrogen. My brother bought me Graviola as he was told that is a good one for cancer, but I am afraid to have it with tamoxifen, If someone knows anything please tell me. And my periods did not stop yet I have them on monthly basis and my gynecologist now insists to remove both ovaries and uterus. ## Hello I'm looking for that information too. Maybe we can talk about your experience. My wife is the patient and I have been researching for a lot.

Tamoxifen / Numbness in hands and feet

I have been on Tamoxifen for almost five years and have had many of the side effects - horrendous hot flashes, joint pain, leg cramps. About 6 weeks ago I started noticing my hands and feet were going numb and tingling and they are sore and hurt. I have had blood tests for Lymes, B12 deficiency, A1C and CBC, etc. - all negative. I had an MRI on my shoulder blade as I. Had such a pain/knot, thinking pinched nerve ~ negative, MRI on my neck, awaiting results. Went to chiropractor and confirmed not pinched nerve. I am wondering if anyone on Tamoxifen has had this side effect? Luckily, I have 25 more days on this med and I am finished my treatment. Waiting to feel better and certainly will not miss the hot flashes. hope to hear from someone. Thanks! ## Hello, Mallory! How are you? Those sym...

Beginning Tamoxifen

I started my Tamoxifen today. 1st pill of five years. So far today, so good. Y biggest concern (after the obvious) is weight gain. I have been in Weight Watchers for a year and have worked so hard in my weight loss journey. I am so afraid it will come back. Are there many cases out there of people maintaining their weight or is it that big of a side effect that it's pretty much guaranteed? Any and all comments would be appreciated!! Best of luck to the other ladies out there too. ## It's actually hard to say, because some people have been known to lose weight while taking it. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? They may be able to help you find ways to mitigate such an effect. Are there any woman who can post that have already taken this and have experience with it? #...

Vaginal yeast infections and itching down below

I'm nearly 5 years in from my breast cancer diagnosis... I was 34 I'm now 39 and at the end of October it will be 5 years clear! My issue is I've had no side effects apart from slight weight gain and bad skin or skin changes, I've ended up with hyper pigmentation which I'd never had before not even during pregnancies but my worst side effect by far has only been affecting me for the last year and a half but it's pretty much constant uncomfortable feeling down below like when you have thrush, it's itchy and annoying but also lots of discharge much more than normal... I've been advised to stay on it until 2029!!! But I don't think I can, my oncologist said have a break and go back to it which I did and as soon as I stopped the thrush symptoms stopped an...

Tamoxifen & Hot Flushes

I am 51 and it is now a year since I had a lumpectomy. Prior to starting taking Tamoxifen I was having regular periods but since taking the tablets they have stopped which is great, however, the hot flushes are unbearable especially in this hot weather, they are embarrassing as I literally break out in a sweat. I have also put on a considerable amount of weight which I am finding hard to lose. Please could anyone advise how long the hot flushes are likely to go on for, is it 5 years? I hope not as I don't think I can cope with them. I have tried accupuncture which seemed to help with the flushes but it is relatively expensive as I think it is an ongoing problem. Also worried as a friend who finished taking Tamoxifen a year ago has had to have a hysterectomy due to thickening of the ...
