Estrogen reduction accomplished

I don't want to announce this prematurely, but I think...I really think... that my stubborn ovaries have finally been vanquished. The triptorelin has kicked in, and I haven't had a period in 5 weeks. Woo hoo! Sorry, Tambrands and Always, I won't be needing you any longer.

In other news, I'm off my old anti-depressant, and just started the new one. Literally started it this morning. It may take a few weeks to kick in, so don't know yet if it will work, how it will work, how I will feel, etc. Hopefully, I won't go crazy in the meantime.

And in still other news, I'm starting to feel some heat. Not hot flashes exactly, but definitely some heat in my body. Mostly in the evening, and definitely when I'm trying to sleep.

So the good news is that with the triptorelin kicking in and the Tamoxifen, and the anti-depressant that doesn't block the Tamoxifen, my estrogen should be getting lower and lower now. And that is GOOD for preventing recurrences. Woo hoo!
