Don Posted January 9, 2008 Share Posted January 9, 2008 Living Longer with Lung Cancer. Now that is something we all would like to hear. The Cure Magazine has a article titled Hazardous To Your Heart. Some cancer therapies effectively kill cancer cells but with consequences to the heart. They talk about how cancer patients that have had radiation and chemo are living longer but now having problems with the heart. I had to have both hips replaced due to steriods that I was given for chemo and gamma knife. The doctors and I kinda had a chuckle about that saying that I wasn't suppose to live that long to have those side effects. 7 Jan 08 I hit my 5 year mark. This week they are sending me to the heart doctor to see what they think about my fast pulse rate. I have seen a few articles about cancer patients having heart attacks after they beat the cancer. For those of you that would like the Cure magazine go to www.curetoday.com and sign up. Its free and always has alot of good info. Just something to be aware of.
