Does taking Nolvadex affect Cervical Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy?
The efficacy of Cervical Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy is not influenced by the use of Nolvadex or any other medication typically prescribed for breast cancer treatment, such as tamoxifen. Nolvadex is primarily used to block estrogen receptors in breast tissue and is not directly related to the mechanisms involved in radiofrequency neurotomy.
