Met with the cardiologist yesterday regarding the atrial fibrillation I had been experiencing. He says it looks like my heart converted. Since this was my second espisode, he said I may be one of the people who go in and out on their own. He said my heart looks good. His exact words, "Your heart looks pretty good for a 65-year old." Uh, gee, thanks, I guess? He prescribed a pill to help keep it in rhythm and I am to continue to take the Metoprolol that keeps my heart from racing. So my heart is good but take these drugs. Doesn't make much sense but I guess it is good to do while I am on chemo. I'll see him in six months.
I am still feeling so fatigued and a little lightheaded when I get up. I have chemo next Wednesday so I was hoping to feel a lot better by now. I also seem to have contracted a cold. I haven't had a cold since before my diagnosis 3/16/2010. Maybe that is adding to how I feel. I said I have cancer and I have to get a cold too?
