Been on Anastrozole almost 1 year. after mastectomy for grade 1 cancer..had previous mastectomy for fibro cystic breast 40 years ago! Since starting medication I developed cough with mucous(clear production) and have become gradually more breathless.now on 2 inhalers but getting worse.Chest Xrays clear.Also problems with joint pain/stiffness... can cope with joints but need to breathe!! any suggestions please..can I stop Anistrozole ..just to see if breathing improves?
I don't think that you should trust Just a chest x ray. my husband had cancer last year. he was just in the hospital and they did a chest xray and an EKG on him. they also did an ultrasound of his heart which you should get done too. my instructions from the hospital say that if he is feeling breathless while resting said he needs to go to the hospital. I hope this helps you. They also cautioned me about swelling.
