I have been off Anastrozle for a week , I see a big difference in how I feel , I'm still a bit wobbly . I had a diagnostic mammogram last week & it was benign !! I'm less crabby but tire easily . We are members of the San Diego Model T Ford Club & one of our yearly events is the Horseless Rodeo at the San Diego County Fair which is this weekend .  We play games with the Model T's in a horse arena & afterwards enjoy the fair  . I'm not going this year , it requires a lot of walking & I don't want to drag my oxygen concentrator along .  My husband plans to go & is hoping he can get someone to go along .

maryz we have a mimosa by the back steps  , I wait patiently every year for it to bloom & attract the hummingbirds .  The tree is 44 years old & still going strong .  We had a Mulberry tree that was planted by the birds & had it cut down . It was a good shade tree but the berries got tracked into the house & it made a mess .

I stopped taking the Anastrozole this morning . I know it will take awhile to feel normal again . I asked hubby to help me register with my medical online . When I was having to choose a password my brain wasn't working , I got frustrated & started to choke up . I put hubby on the phone with the person who was assisting me . I was to use high case letters & numbers & it confused me .
I hope I don't go through reactions with the next med they put me on .

jane , I am glad you are able to visit Portland , my home town !  Were you in Portland in time for the Rose Festival Parade ?  I love to go to the Multnomah Falls when we are in the area .  My Dad worked on the road crews when the roads in the area were being built , WPA , I think .

I saw the cancer dr. this morning & she agreed with me the med she had me taking to block hormones , Anastrozole is messing up my body . She told me to not take it for 2 weeks . She said not many women lose weight taking it as I have .  Lately it has affected my balance too & today I'm having a problem with my thinking .  We were at the hospital where several of my dr.'s offices are located & waiting for the elevator , I felt wobbly , stayed where I was & called for my husband .
I tried to log in to my file online & couldn't , so I called the help line .  I told the person I was talking with I would have to call back another time because I couldn't follow his instructions .

My wrist is better but still need to watch what I do . I see the cancer dr. this morning & hope I can stop taking the little white pill which I believe is the cause of most of my discomforts .

SCFSue    My husband is great helping me , so glad I have only made one dinner since we have been home .  I don't remember if I mentioned I strained my right wrist which added to the problems . Its been difficult doing the simplest tasks .

My appetite has really gotten less , I think my stomach has shrunk . This morning I am still tired .  I see one of my dr.s on Tuesday , was suppose to have had a mammogram but didn't . I know she won't be happy .  One thing that messed me up was the medical group switched over to being online & I didn't quite make the transition . My brain is foggy & that doesn't help .

We have been away all week on a National Model T Ford Tour near Santa Rosa .  Unfortunately I didn't feel good most of the week .I didn't feel like eating & had problem breathing . I slept with the oxygen at night . The hotel was huge &  very tiresome to walk . I won't go into all the negatives .   There was a computer for public use at the hotel but the only website I could get was facebook . The hotel used Safari & it wouldn't connect with with our email site .

I have been having headaches , backaches , loss of appetite .  I googled a little white pill my cancer dr. has me taking .  These are all side affects of this medication !!  I was told I could take ibuhprofen for any pain it may cause but too much can cause liver problems !  I have been taking it for months & just started having all these discomforts !!  I can't imagine going through this discomfort for the rest of my life !!

maryz   All I could think of was to get the car off the freeway .  It is very dangerous to simply pull over to the shoulder & wait for help to come .  As a friend said a driver on drugs or alcohol could have ran into my car ! I knew the tire was shot , so it wasn't my main concern .  Surviving was !

Yesterday I was on the freeway going 70mph on a 6% grade I had a flat tire .  I managed to drive to the off ramp & turned into a mini mart parking .  I called my husband & he came to my rescue , then took my car for a new tire . The tire was still under warranty , so he got a free replacement & paid $25 for a warranty on the new tire . Several people asked me if I needed help , its nice living in a small town !

Cottoncandy  I also take Amlodipine , my dosage is  10mg . a day  .  I am tired too but have attributed it to other factors .  I'm also taking Anastrozole from my cancer dr. & hot flashes are one of the side affects , along with aching .  One dr. told me I get tired from breathing ( asthma , COPD ) .

I had an appt. with my primary care dr. this morning regarding a chest  x ray , , lab results & my oxygen level .  The chest x ray was okay , I had seen the results & wondered about a word in it . The dr. said it wasn't a tumor but scar tissue from having had pneumonia ( I have had it several times over the years ) . The lab was okay & he said steroids had some thing to do with elevated sugar level . He has said in the past he isn't concerned with it .  My oxygen reading was 96 !!   A far cry from 88 a few weeks ago & I can get off the oxygen !!  :thumbup:
The oxygen equipment will be picked up on Wednesday !!

My husband is working with our insurance concerning the ER dr. that admitted me in February .  She didn't have my insurance information & YIKEs !  It was over $1,000 & I only saw her once .  I really don't remember her , so I must have been unaware .

I'm still coughing from the bout with pneumonia but I'm feeling stronger every day ( I am very careful if I feel a cough coming on & cough into the bend of my elbow ) . Today I was in  the check out at the grocery store , the woman ahead of me told the checker she had a bad cold .   I was silently saying to myself " thanks a lot ! "  I told her I was recovering from pneumonia . I turned my back to her & hope I don't get what ever she has !   I'm weaning myself off the oxygen as my primary dr. said to do , but I still use it at night .  I mentioned to my husband last night that I wondered if I could go off it at night . He scared me , he said " I don't know if I can get the funeral papers from the safe ( he meant open the safe ) if you do die !!   I see my dr. in a few days & I will talk to him about not using the oxygen at night . I am off it during the day .

I saw my primary care dr. this morning & asked him about Prolia & that the cancer dr. wants me to take it .  He said no & the cancer dr  does not know my medical history . She doesn't know I have respiratory issues & when I saw her last she asked me about the oxygen I was using .  One of the issues with Prolia is that it can cause shortness of breath, I already an dealing with that  .  I'm happy my primary dr. said no . For me there are too many bad affects .  The dr. said it it interferes with elecrolytes also .

Does anyone take Prolia ? I saw my cancer dr. today & she thinks I should get the Prolia injections every 6 months to help prevent bone loss . She gave me some information on it . I want to talk to my primary dr. about it because it may interfere with my regular medications .

We got back home from the Model T tour this afternoon . One day we went to a ghost town of Nelson , Nevada .  http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/nv/nelson.html     There was a tour of a mine but I didn't go because of "my machine" as I call it . learned later the path in the mine was rocky & dusty , so it was best I didn't go in .  Most all of the driving was on roads difficult for a Model T to drive safely , modern cars went whizzing by & wasn't  what us Model T'ers are use to . I could say many things that bothered us but I won't bore you . Just happy to be back home !

I have been using NYSTATIN for Thrush following my stay in the hospital .  The dr. said I could swallow it or spit it out after using it . I didn't swallow it because I get sick from many drugs  I must have swallowed a bit & had a stomach ache & upset stomach . This morning I had to hurry to the bathroom . I have stopped using it .  Has anyone had this reaction to it ?
