Trouble breathing is a rare but serious side effect of Armidex, but I would suspect it would have more to do with the anesthesia and hx of asthma.
Especially since you have been taking the Armidex, since May and I assume you did not have any breathing trouble the 1st few mths of taking Armidex?

I know that anesthesia is hard on the lungs. that is why they make sure you don't have a cold or bronchitis before you have surgery.

I am a br. ca survivor also. I take Femara, which is similar to Armidex and have tolerated it well.
