Have been reading worrying reports about tamoxifen causing secondary non oestrogen receptive tumours. Have been on the breast cancer care site and read their forums and advice. The net is buzzing with it. My breast cancer facebook friends are also understandably worried. Apparantly tamoxifen they say prevents a second tumour by 60% it's just that if you do get one it's less likely to be oestrogen receptive and so harder to treat. Should we be worried?  Even more to be worried about. Sometimes I feel like my head is going to explode with it all!!

I have also had a setback on my decision making of surgery due to yet another person having problems (permanent ones. Problems that is!).

Last week my brother phoned the genetics clinic to make an appointment for his blood test. Apparantly there is a month's waiting list. He asked for a Wednesday before October so that I could go with him. I have Wednesday's off until October when I then have Fridays off which is what I wanted to do in the first place.

Last week at work was very hard going especially Thursday and Friday. I went with Gray for a balti at Varsha's Friday evening after work. But I had to get up at 0400 to vomit. I'm sure it wasn't the foos as we have eaten there loads of times and the food is good there. In the morning I felt exhausted as I did most of the day so we stayed at home. Hopefully I'll have the energy tomorrow.

I'm on amoxicillin at the moment as I have an apical abcess on a tooth that was RCT'd by Shobhna before our holiday about a month ago. She says I cracked the root when I fell over. A fes years ago I tripped over a broken paving stone and damaged 2 of my teeth. Perhaps I should have sued the council!

Had a great Friday night. Went for a Morrocan meal in Mosley at "La Fibule" with our friends Mo and Pete and Jill and John. Fantastic food and fantastic company. Jill and John are such a laugh!

Mo had the results of her blood test and her Thyroid was normal. So all her problems must be caused by the tamoxifen. I've obviously been lucky.
