This is probably the wrong place for this, but when I tried to follow the “introduce yourself” link in the start here section, it said access denied! So if mods want to move it, feel free.
So, I’m a 78 year old, long-retired academic, diagnosed with PC in 2017, having lived happily with Essential Thrombocythemia (one of the rarer blood cancers) since 2013. PSA 600 @ diagnosis, urologist was 100% sure there were metastases, but couldn’t find any. Refused radiotherapy at that stage because of danger of it causing the indolent blood cancer to morph into something much nastier. Lived on leuproline and bicalutamide till the latter stopped working. Had high intensity palliative RT, then from beginning of this year, been on Lp plus Darolutamide, which has reduced PSA to <<1.
Which is great, but it has played merry h**l with my muscle mass, so am now walking and moving like someone around 80. Oh, hang on, I am nearing 80! Living in a rural area, needing to keep wood burner fed, need advice how to counter the muscle loss!
