I had a left sided mastectomy with reconstruction at the end of Oct last year after 3 previous unsuccessful ops between August and September to try and remove my dcis. Started on tamoxifen at the end of November. On 4th January this year (I remember the exact day) I started with pain in my lower back and I am still suffering. Also get cramping in my legs and my hips and feet ache. Doctor says it is muscular rather than the tamoxifen but there are numerous forums with plenty of people on tamoxifen complaining of joint pain. Had a bone scan but all clear. I have had enough. Stopped taking the tamoxifen about 2 weeks ago but still in pain. Different opinions as to how long it can take tamoxifen to leave the body. Anyone have any ideas or have experienced the same symptoms?
