Nearly 8 years since I was diagnosed with Gleason 9, T3 tumour. Zoladex on and off, cancer is now on second recurrence. Next PSA test in Jan 2020. Absolutely terrified. They said I might need more scans, and I will go on Bicalutamide for life. I've reduced responsibilities at work, but feel like I did when I was diagnosed in the first place. After Bicalutamide it will be enzalutamide and Arbiraterone options, they say.
I'm making appointment with hospital Psychiatrist to get help with coping in my head.
I wonder how effective the Bicalutamide will be? , and how long it will work for? So many miserable, dark thoughts, its almost unbearable.
I know a lot of people are worse of than me, but I can't help worrying. Spoke to PCUK nurse last night, she was brill, gave me lots of support.
Have side effects: ED, Moods, tears, sore between legs, foreskin growing onto shaft of penis, some incontinence.
Has anyone been on Zoladex and Bicalutamide? Do the side effects get worse when Bical is started?
