Long term side affects

Posted 18 Feb 2018 at 14:18

So hi to all,

I may be in a small group. I had type 3b, Brachy and 2 years of Zoladex, which stopped about 2 years ago. Now a few extra problems,  bad spine and aortic stenosis (bad heart valve), and could happily spend all day complaining. But the PSA is down, so OK. But .... I still get severe fatigue which kicks in midday every day. Its just like being on Zoladex. Anybody else still getting fatigue two years after what looks like successful treatment? Don't know if its my ticker or the long shadow of that ghastly drug Zoladex. Any views?

73 tomorrow!

Hi Otto,

Recently read that it takes as long as you took Zoladex to get it out of your system.

Had it for 6 months and that was enough, but small price to pay really.

Happy B for tomorrow. (Feb14th myself)

Otto, if in doubt assume the worst, ie, it's your ticker causing the fatigue. Get to see a cardiologist asap. Heart health a damn sight more important than worrying about the residual effects of Zoladex.
