Re: Damage to heart from FEC

Hi
Although I do not have the same problems that you have mentioned Philomena, I do have complications from FEC that I had 5 years ago. I developed atrial fibrillation (palpitations to the rest of us!), the 'E' part of the FEC can cause heart problems that are well documented. Unfortunately, as I also have secondaries, this is further complicating my continuing treatment options and I am now seeing a heart specialist to help with these.

Re: Damage to heart from FEC

I'm afraid I can't really help except to say I only had one fec and was taken off it because the symptoms I reported implied it may be damaging my heart.

Damage to heart from FEC

Just wondering if there is anyone Elsie out there with this problem?
I finished my last FEC last Monday and was admitted to hospital early hours of Tuesday with chest pain! To cut a long story short I now have Tricuspid regurgitation and aortic stenosis, which appear to be a side affect from the FEC and also the the tumour.
I am due my rads planning this Tuesday and wondering if any else has had this problem and how they get around the rads problem.
