OK Nalakrats and Patrick, just back from meeting with the cardiologist today. I don't have the complete results of the 2-week ecg monitor but I have a copy of an Urgent Message sent to the cardiologist during the testing from the firm doing the monitoring that shows the ups and downs of the irregular heart rhythms and rates. The range goes from 66 bpm to 154 bpm in 30 seconds. Assuming that this is the worst reading in the 2 weeks, it might show that my A-Fib is perhaps moderate. I have now stopped the medicine (Amiodarone). I take blood pressure readings regularly and they are generally in the 110--125 over 55-60, the heart rate is usually 55-60. The cardiologist is OK with this as long as I don't have significant episodes and with continual monitoring.
Considering the above, do you feel that it would be wise to supplement with Taurine and Arginine? I also saw my oncologist today and the results of last week's Pet/Ct scans indicate that the few small bone mets remain stable but the new scans have identified several enlarged lymph nodes suspected of metastatic disease. I have been on a 12 month holiday from hormonal treatment other than Avodart and Metformin but I will probably start a second round of estrogen patches shortly, my PSA has risen to 2.75 from a low of 0.08 a year ago.
Thanks for you advise,
