I am on Prostap3 for 3 years and my CNS says it’s one of the kindest with relation to side effects😱 I could tolerate HT for 18 months, which would be 2 months to go and I would be counting down the hours, knowing that the end was in sight but I’m only half way there. I just live in hope that the joint issues don’t get any worse otherwise I will need a wheelchair to get me on a plane out to our place in Fuerteventura!🤣🤣🤣
I have been SO proactive about my PCa and treatment but this one’s got to me, but a few things still to try…I will NOT give up on this…
Short Course of Ibuprofen which I will be starting tomorrow.
Daily Swimming…I started it out here but went down with a cold so lying low for the moment.
Im going to see my acupuncturist when I get back to the UK and have needles stuck in me.
I’m going to go private and see a professor of Urology to see if he has any suggestions.
This is on top of my exercise regime of walking, cycling and gym….someone even suggested I was doing too much but I’ve tried cutting back and it doesn’t help at all.
I sometimes feel that those of us on HT/RT are abandoned after their RT ends which is disappointing because it’s FAR from the end of their treatment and I get the impression you just have to ‘suck it up’ if you’re side effects are seriously affecting your QOL. Without the support of my family and friends, Maggies, the members of PCUK and the little happy pill(sertraline😊) I would be a total wreck!
