Hi Alex I am aware of problems after Radiotherapy, some of which can start many years down the road. I didn't know that it was called PRD. There is a lot of info on this subject online, I presume that you have looked at this. You say that u had RT in 2015 , when did the problems start, what symptoms are u having? Steve.
Sorry the simple answer is no. Most people want to get "successfully" treated.for prostate or any other cancer and return to "normal". Normal.meaning how they were before. It would be unrealistic and falsely reassuring to say that ever happens. Firstly, having any treatment for prostate cancer has irreversible physical consequences. The mainstream treatments aimed at eradicating the disease ( where it can be), i.e. Radiotherapy or Surgery, have permanent effects. The effects of hormone therapy may be reversed when it's discontinued, but it isn't aimed at eradicating the disease, so if used temporarily, may be used in conjunction with RT or surgery. Secondly, there are psychological consequences.of having cancer which are likely to remain pe.
Hi, I may have misread or incompletely read what you've written, but thought it might it help to clarify some things. I note the grade 5 which is based on a Gleason score of 9 or 10. This means the cancer is very aggressive hence the immediate hormone therapy. I don't seem to have read if you have been given a tumour "T" grading. This is usually based on the biopsy, more importantly, on an MRI. The MRI should indicate if the tumour is either contained in the gland itself, or has grown through the gland wall, invaded other tissues nearby or has spread to lymph nodes in the pelvis. The grade 5, Gleason 10 does NOT give any indication of this "spread", it is only an indication of how likely it is. An MRI detects local spread. The bone scan wil.
Sorry to hear of this. Just a few things you might find of some help. Firstly, it is worthwhile trying to sort this out with the hospital. This is not by writing a letter of complaint the recognised and more effective procedure is to contact the hospital Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS). I suggest you make an appointment to discuss your concerns in detail. They can advise you what to do and can act as intermediary. You don't say, but if the doctor phoning you up was a urology doctor a). urology doctors are surgeons, your case should be being dealt with by an oncologist. If this is the case then you can ask to be referred to an oncologist b) A doctor phoning you like this could be considered to be harassment. This conduct is a cause.
Hello Steve and every one , thanks for the reply , my first PSA was done 1st at mt Doctors and i forget if it was done when first starting all the tests and biopsies at the Hospital , as regards this Doctor it is as you say probably no good complaining as he does come over very blunt , but the idea is for the clinical nurse to report back to the Team there and I should be able to ask to see a Doctor for Anti Androgen drugs or advise, i should not have to [ prompt ] a Doctor for them, also bone pain is worsened by HT and he has put that down to seeing a Cardiologist , but i have have wide spread Osteoarthritis which is also made worse by HT and other bone issues, the head aches and memory loss i forgot to tell him about.
One of my favourite travel writers Bill Bryson travels around the human body. Loads of facts but very readable in his own inimitable manner. . In his chapter on Cancer he mentions Prostate Cancer and says half of men over 60 and three quarters of men over 70 have Prostate cancer at death without knowing it In fact if all men lived long enough they will all get prostate cancer he writes. At £25 a little dear but you find out how much of the bodies organs works. Just possibly a Penguin Edition exists and may be cheaper. Published 2019. In the chapter on Skin he says 90% of people in the northern hemisphere are deficient in Vitamin D for much of the year. I seem to remember that in the booklet on Hormone Therapy loss of Calcium may occur from
