New to this forum but wondered if i could ask a bit of advice from those in the know?
I've been diagnosed for (I think) just over 2 years, with 18 months of active surveylance PSA went up at the beginning of the year, had a biopsy (I think Gleeson 6) and I saw an oncolgist at Easter. He recommended another MRI which I waited 6 months later. This showed locally advanced with shadows on the seminal vasicals.
Having suffered all my life with depression and anxiety, the period of waiting and the results cause d me major problems.
I've had meetings with a phsychiatrist and have an appointment with a clinical phychologist (may have this mixed up) late January. However, mid January I have a meeting with my oncology guy and the radiologist.
I have asked some questions of the oncology guy and he can be a bit evassive on some, to which there isnt likely a definitive answer so cant hold that against him. However, I'm looking for advice on what to ask at the meeting when they're both there? I go through quite bad (and frequent) depressive episodes where I see no point in asking anything as it'll happen anyway. I thought maybe if I pre-empted this with a made up list, I might get more from the meeting.
I'm thinking diet, recovery and what I can't seem to find, do the side effects go away (lucky so far as relatively few, but I've only been on Prostap for about 6 weeks.
