From this study (1 year ago):
My ankles swell about a hour after I awake in the morning. They go down at night. I have not gained any more weight. I am on a low sodium diet and have stopped eating anything with sugar in it for the last two months. I increased my water intake. I drink about 64 ounces of water a day. I urinate every two hours all day long. It used to be only at night now it is every two hours all day. My blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure are all great with the medications. This is my 4th year on tamoxifen. I took arimidex for 5 years prior. Cancer was found on the skin that was saved after my mastectomy after 5 years. I had radiation therapy. This was four years ago.
