confusion wits end

Posted 27 August 2017 09:42:58(UTC)

Please can some one please give me some advice. my uncle is on the hormone treatment 3 weeks on the bicalutamide and on his 1st zolade inplant

The problem is hes very confused. things he cant remember and things he cant..he wood say something and then not remember saying it 5 minutes later. he does not seem to listen.

Am finding it very hard to cope as am on my own and he gets up at night like last night i got 2 hours sleep. 

I have said to dr,s and social workers about this but they dont seem to care. i have very high anxiety levels and all this is not helping i sometimes feel if i none something  maybe they wood ask why.and see that i needed help

Am asking if any on this treatment has had/or has any of the confusion effects   and how you coped  


thanks michelle

Michelle, are you coping with your uncle by yourself? No other family member to help you?

When he gets up at night is it for a wee or is he confused and wandering the house.

I do feel that for you yourself you must approach your GP and explain how anxious you are. Try and get your GP involved in getting YOU help at least.

I hope those who have gne the bicalutamide and zoladex implant route will come along and offer advice.

You could also ring the nurses on here . Have you approached Macmillan at the hospital?

Michelle, I have been on Zoladex for ten years and am no more confused than when I started. With the information given about your uncle, it is impossible to offer an opinion about him. So far as your own situation is concerned, Johsan is spot on. Talk to your GP as a matter of urgency.

... and if the GP won't take it seriously, then take him to A&E


There's something going on with him - almost certainly nothing to do with his PCA treatment - something serious.
