New to this forum but regular member of prostate forum. Have been on Flomax (alpha blocker) since mid June with a couple of stand up too fast dizzy spells until this past Tuesday morning's 4-mile hike. I normally have a 70 minute, stationery bike work out but have been reduced to the hike after Brachy Thearapy seed implants for prostate cancer.
mile three pain in left arm, left shoulder, neck, and headache came on. Looked for a shady spot to stop and felt light headed. Managed trip to living room and noticed a lot more sweat than usual.
GP says heart sounds good and EKG is normal. BP varies from 120/60 to 140/90 with most readings about
130/78. I jut turned 66 and have always worked out over 350 day per year. No smoking or alcohol with lots of heart illness in family history.
GP wants me to do a nuclear stress. I am worried about
adding more radiation to my system with 81 p103 seeds already implanted. Would ECG stress test be just as useful in determining my prognosis?
