My partner was diagnosed in January 2019. PSA 38. Gleason 9
He started immediately on monthly Prostap and finished 18 weeks cycle of Docetaxel 6 weeks ago.
He’s now on a treatment break until he has brachytherapy in mid November. PSA is 0.05.
During his chemo he experienced extreme fatigue, very upset stomach and anaemia. The side effects lasted for about half of the 3 weeks between treatments.
He’s just spent a week away - working - in Spain. He came back on Thursday and has barely got out of bed since. He’s completely wiped out. He says it’s as though his chemo side effects are back. Is this normal? To be expected? He won’t ring anyone - nurse specialist, GP etc. I’m worried.
