Customer Question
Hi. I'm in menopause due...
Hi. I'm in menopause due to chemotherapy from breast cancer. I'm on tamoxifen & am having very bad pelvic pains for over a month. I have constant clear discharge. Ultrasound showed 2 follicles on ovaries, very small fibroid, endometrial thickening 6mm with fluid. Gyn doesn't seem concerned. Should I be?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: What do you need to know? Pain is dull, achy & severe & not on one particular side. . I feel bloated and full.i think my groin lymph nodes are causing pain two--the area right above the joint between leg & pelvis
JA: OK got it. Last thing — OB GYN Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am 41. I have been on Tamoxifen for 2 years and 3 months.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Don't know if this is relevant, but my mom died of colon cancer. She was diagnosed with metastasized cancer at 55.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Ted Manos, Board Certified OB/GYN replied 1 year ago

Your ultrasound results are ok. Endometrium 6mm is reduced from average thickness. The pain is hard to pinpoint including the groin area. For now, you should have something for the pain. Estrogen has so many effects and tamoxifen either blocks estrogen or mimics depending on the site. Could you be building some lactose intolerance that happens with menopause? You might reduce your dairy intake. Are your stools softer which is seen with lactose intolerance.

You should tell your doctor about that history.
