    Mood changes

    Side Effects

    I am on Femara and the mood changes are something else. I am also taking Prozac to counteract these. Sometime they come out of the blue and other times I can go weeks feeling fine.

    Procedure or Surgery

    CT Scan of neck with contrast tommorrow. The PET Scan showed some "glowing" in the thyroid area. Since I had a thyroidectomy in 1985 my oncologist is curious about what's going on.

    Procedure or Surgery

    I have an attempted spuraclavicular lymph node biospy last Tuesday. The interventional radiologist said he could not get a sample due to it being too close to an artery. All the prep and aggravation for nothing
