Has anyone had a mini thoracotomy to replace heart valve? How did it go?

Sun, Jan 19 12:44pm · Zoledronic Acid: I need feed back for this drug please in Breast Cancer

First time I had the treatment I felt like I had the flu and was tired for a day. I have had three more treatments and have no side effects! Hang in there!

Is there any current information with people who have had a mini thoracotomy and unbearable pain in right shoulder and arm. The arm feeling numb, like it has a sleeve on it and very sensitive to touch. Also, what kinds of things helped with the pain and how long did the pain last after the surgery. Thanks

Yes, I have that book too, very helpful and hopeful! I keep both books out on my table and read them almost everyday – so I stay on track to be the healthiest I can be! Continued good luck!

I concur – 👍. P.S. another good book is, “Breast’s The Owner’s Manual” every women’s guide to reducing cancer risk, making treatment choices, and optimizing outcomes by Dr. Kristi Funk. Good luck all! 😀

Hi, I go to Rochester, MN as well. I was very fortunate to hear John Shin, M.D. at the Cancer Education Center, in the Gonda Building on April 2, 2019. The topic was Diet and Cancer: Does it matter what I eat, evidence-based recommendations for focusing on plant-based nutrition. It was very informative information on foods that fight breast cancer. Not sure he speaks too often but if he does go! A book that is extremely helpful to support Dr. Shins presentation is “How Not To Die”, by Michael Gregor, MD, FACLM founder of NUTRITIONFACTS.ORG. Discover the foods Scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease. Chapter 11 is specifically targeting Breast Cancer. I find it very enlightening and gives me some control over my fight against Breast Cancer. Good luck and good reading?

Sep 25, 2019 · Zoledronic Acid: I need feed back for this drug please in Breast Cancer

The first time I had the Zoledronic acid I felt like I had the flu and was very tired. I slept all night and stayed in bed the next day, then I was fine. The next two times I had no reaction at all, maybe just a little tired. That was my experience. Good luck! 😀

Jul 22, 2019 · Anastrozole...has anyone had an increase in glucose or cholesterol in Breast Cancer

I am on anastrozole, after about 8 months on it my LDL went up 50 points. I since have modified my diet to more plant based and it went back down. I am continuing on the plant based diet and we will see in December if it went down more. A good book on plant based foods for people with breast cancer is, “How Not To Die” by Michael Gregor, MD., FACLM. I also find if I cut way down on salt and pretty much eliminate dairy types of food, I get less aches and pain in my joints. Although I feel I am lucky because my side effects are not bad. Good luck to all!
