A New Chapter

Posted 09 Mar 2019 at 01:34

Hi Bazza, 

Thanks for the useful advice.  I've just had the date for my next oncology meeting come through, the 14th May so I will definitely discuss the possibility of what you suggested. 

Hope the rest of your chemo goes well

This week saw the results of my latest PSA Test come through when I saw the Oncologist:  2.6, up from 1.9 in March. 

The rise was expected by the onco, who's happy for me to continue just on Zoladex until I reach double figures when she'll try adding Bicalutamide too.

Suffering badly from fatigue just now which is very much due to the HT but have no choice,  it will be a lifelong treatment.

Hi Steve,

Sorry to hear your results have risen again, I tried to message you but your inbox is full.

Sorry to read your latest. From my HT times not worrying about low energy levels lessened the stress. Just go with the flow.

Keep strong

Lack of energy is the worst side-effect of HT for me. A couple of weeks ago I went on a photographic holiday in Yorkshire, and walks which before my HT started I wouldn't even have been been breathing heavily after, left me an absolutely quivering wreck. It's not nice at all, although I know it's a vital part of my treatment. As others have said, I think you just have to accept that it's "the new you" and go with the flow.

All the very best,

Sorry to read this Steve. Thinking of you.
