Roxy Jacenko reveals cancer medication gives hot sweats

Her life changed dramatically after she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. 

And Roxy Jacenko, 37, has revealed just how difficult life has become following her diagnosis, admitting that her cancer-blocking medication has brought on an uncomfortable side-effect.

Appearing on KIIS FM’s Kyle And Jackie O Show, the mother-of-two spoke candidly about her recovery process, revealing that she underwent a six-week period before taking Tamoxifen, a medication used to prevent breast cancer.

‘I’m glad it’s 16 degrees in here because I feel like I’m 70 degrees at all times from this medication,’ she told the radio shock-jocks. 

‘I’m hot every day! I’ll have it for ten years, it’s a cancer blocker. I was very young to get cancer, so Tamoxifen is something that pushes you into early menopause,’ she explained. 

‘So you can imagine- you know of the mother’s that get hot sweats? Roxy has the hot sweats!’ 

Someone get this woman a fan! 'I'm glad it's 16 degrees in here because I feel like I'm 70 degrees at all times from this medication,' she told the radio shock-jocks

While Roxy assured the radio stars that she hadn’t been pushed into menopause yet, she did admit that she has no plans to have any more children soon.  

Earlier this week, Roxy revealed that her doctor found another lump in her breast last month, but was relieved to discover that it wasn’t cancerous.

‘I had my 12-month check up just three weeks ago, it was a scary time as there was another lump in the same breast,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
