Officially 2 weeks on Tamoxifen and it feels like 2 years, ugh! I’ve only forgotten to take my pill twice – so I guess I’m averaging about once a week.
This week, I decided to set a daily alarm on my phone in the hopes that it will prompt me to take the pill. So far, so good – its working. My hot flashes are still here, but I haven’t noticed them getting worse or more frequent. However, I’m sure they will. The best way that I found to deal with hot flashes is to literally stick my head in the freezer for a minute or two. It works, but unfortunately I’m not always near a freezer.
My hair is coming in too – I even took off my bandana the other night when we had friends over. It is dark! Sometimes, I’m still in shock that I’m a baldy! I’m thinking I may need to call my hair stylist to set-up a consultation in 5 or 6 weeks. I’m not looking forward to the weird transition hairstyles as I desperately try to grow my hair back.
Next up is a 6 follow-up appointment with my surgeon on Thursday (will actually end up being at 7 months, since I called late to schedule the appointment)!
