Well, is there a composite list of Cardiac SE’s during Lupron 90 day injections?
Yes, increased hypertension is primary.
Anybody can provide me like a top five?
Considering discussion with my Cardiologist-NP next Thursday.
My EP(electrophysiologist) too…
Trying to justify my change of PCa ADT/ cardio health treatment August 31’st.
Ischemia and irregular nonspecific heart rhythms …. Mine shows as being similar to a minor right bundle branch block but changes and I have random ectopic beats . I have a lot of those. Doctors not worried about any of it. Says “ no biggie “ .
All this is easily seen with a Kardia home ekg device. My “ good “ ekg runs vary between one out of three to two out of three. Occasionally I have all three diagnose three out of three good.
On the Kardia I run my wife and her qrs train is tall and strong, textbook perfect. Mine , OTH, is week and scrambled eggs looking. I wonder how Kardia makes much sense of any of it. Still, like my team of docs said, no biggie, never been a problem unless I go looking for it … in the scheme of things …. Gonad shrivel, big boobs, joint aches, muscle pain, exhaustion, hot flash’s and the pile of other far worse things …. My cardiac issues seem like nothing special.
You said it to the point Kaliber.Yes, I too have:
1. Erratic long QRS
2. PAC’s, but my EP says don’t worry about those. Yeh right.
Oh, I’m also paced with 2nd St Jude Med(now Abbott) 90% which may explain my PAC’s and QR:’S.?
I am more concerned with LUPRON Depot 90 day inj’s effects on my Cardiomyopathy and also weight gain I’m trying to slowly reluctantly drop#’s.
Blood pressure and Lupron hormone effects,
Have no idea. That’s why i take 3 BP meds and Furosemide(lasix)…
Yea , I’m on 3 bp meds and part of my lengthy DX says “ drug induced hypertension “ . Got it under control now, my 215/110 is down to 127/73. Also battling drug augmented diabetes two , A1C that jumped to near 9 , now hitting 6.5-6.7 with strict keto diet again. I gained close to 80 pounds nearly instantly on Lupron … before Lupron Xtandi Zometa, I was losing 17 pounds a week. Keto is taking off pounds VERY slowly … at best.
Bp meds lisinopril , hydrochlorothiazide and amlodipine.
Bg meds glimepride and metformin er.
Doug, I have been on continuous Lupron for 21 years. Yes, I know that is not today’s protocol but it is a major factor in my survival this long from Stage IV metatataic cancer, starting with a PSA of 30 and Gleason off the charts. My most recent BP test was yesterday with a 122 over 62. Today I believe it will be intermittent and there are side effects that you must deal with but life is more important.
Great advice. Love your story.Thxs. Doug Will respond accirdingly.
