I spoke with my oncologist yesterday. He thinks the heart monitor is a good idea just to check while I am training but does not really think it is my heart. He is suspecting hypoglycemia. Monitor will come in the mail today and begin wearing it tonight for the next 3 weeks. I can take it off to swim ~ yeah!

We have decided that I am having too many side effects on the Faslodex so those injections are stopped. He will be starting me on another drug which will be oral vs the injection. Not sure which one yet either Femara or Arimadex.

Think I just need some "tweeking" of medications and prayers.. thanks everyone!

It will be interesting to see what the heart monitor tells you.

I've got my fingers crossed it's the meds.

Thank you Daria! I hope you are feeling better :)

I am all hooked up to the monitor and feeling better now that it is 2 weeks out from the last Faslodex injection. Let's hope it stays this way!

Sending thoughts and prayers your way~ Elayne
