Season’s Greetings and Best Wishes to all my dear friends and family xxx

I'm going well with the new treatment (tamoxifen) and the other day I went for another check-up with the specialist. My cancer marker CA125 (blood test) is still very low and the lump in my groin doesn't seem to have grown at all in 8 weeks. That's what I want! And I gather if it is hormone-responsive, the time to start seeing results (tumours shrinking) is 6-12 weeks after starting to take tamoxifen, so I'm still hopeful! The side effects are hot flushes – annoying but not too bad. Even if the tumours just stop growing but don't shrink, I'll be very pleased!
