    Usually, you are on Tamoxifen for 5 years. I just started taking it last week.

    Dear anonymous, I'm 55 years old and had stage 3 ductal breast cancer and they removed 25 lymph nodes and I had been on my tamoxifen for 3 years so far. My doctor told me I will take tamoxifen for 5 years and since my cancer went I'n my lymph nodes after my 5 years of tamoxifen I will be taking another pill for another 5 years
