Am on zytiga and xgiva for metastasized bone cancer following prostate. have been on it for a year. Have noticed increasing fatigue (to be expected on these drugs), dizziness and lightheadedness. Have passed out twice. On going to emergency yesterday was checked to make sure no heart attack, told them drugs I was on, and was given SDZ Bisoprolol to lower blood pressure and regulate heart. They diagnosed me with atrial fibrillation. I am already on Coversyl for bp. Take blood pressure regularly, it vacillates from 147/96 to 118/73 in a matter of minutes. pulse very rapid with mixed beats. my question is, will taking bisoprolol make my dizziness and fainting increase?
any conditions or hormones besides hgh and acromegaly that can cause the bones in the face (including cheekbones) to enlarge? I am 24 and my face continues to widen and cheek bones continue to grow. It has become abnormally large. My jawbones have widened in accordance. It is obvious something is amiss and that this is not due to natural bone growth. This all started with a facial bloating and puffiness episode a few years back. It was caused by some sort of fluid but even when it subsided, it seemed to have triggered the increased bone growth. I plan on seeing an endocrinologist , what kind of tests should i request?
I had a bone marrow biopsy done and I would like to know some information regarding the Aspirate Smear, here is what it said. Quality: Adequate, Cellularity: Cellular, Myeloid lineage: Synchronous and progressive, Erythroid lineage: Synchronous and progressive, Megakaryocytes: Occasional. Normal morphology. Is it normal to have Megakaryocytes in a bone marrow aspirate? Here was the differential: Blasts 0%, Promyelocytes 2%, Myelocyte/Meta 38%, Neutrophil 15%, Eosinophils 2%, Erythroid 27%, Lymphocytes 14%, Plasma cells 2%. M:E ratio 3:1, what does that mean and is it normal? Is it normal to have Promyelocytes and are all the percentages within normal ranges? Core Biopsy: Quality: Suboptimal (short core biopsy). Bone/soft tissue: Normal, Cellularity: Unable to determine but specimen is approximately 40%. Myeloid lineage: Progressive. Erythroid lineage: Progressive. Megakaryocytes: Occasional megakaryocytes with normal morphology. Others: No increase blasts or lymphoid aggregates. What does approximately 40% mean on Cellularity? Also had Special Stains: Aspirate smear Iron stain: No Histiocytic and sideroblastic iron (0/4). Core biopsy, Iron: No stainable iron. I was having Phelbotomies prior to this bone marrow test because I was given too much iron supplement, and my iron became depleted so it seems. My ferritin level at the time of the bone marrow biopsy was only 7. So is it normal to have Megakaryocytes in bone marrow aspirate, I megakaryocytes should only be in the bone marrow, not the aspirate, can you clarify this for me. And are Promyelocytes normal in the aspirate? Is the ratio normal 3:1? And is Cellularity 40%, is that normal? Would greatly appreciate your expertise opinion, thank you.
