Hi Rongym, I'd go with what Steve said. And the consultant is probably right about the Braccy at this stage. Once you're getting regular surveillance I'd let sleeping dogs lie. When I was originally diagnosed it was because I couldn't stop wanting to go for a pee day and night. I only went to my GP because I thought I had an infection. Unfortunately for me it was too late and it had already spread. My Urologist prescribed Tamnexyl to relieve to need for a pee. To some extent it worked but not fully and I was still going to the loo during the night. I was following his advise and not drinking any liquid for the 2 hours before bedtime. Seeing I was still getting up to go to the loo, he also prescribed Betmiga for me. I now take both and I nev.
I really can't think of the reason for this. My brother-in-law lived with advanced cancer which had spread to his bones and spine for many years and didn't stop driving though obviously he and his wife shared the driving on a long run but he still did a lot of driving as his wife doesn't like driving. I would contact the specialist nurse and ask for the reason for this. There are potential side effects side effects of fatigue and from the Hormone Treatment so saying that he shouldn't drive more than he has to is fine so when he feels OK to drive and is not over tired I would imagine he is as able to drive as any of us on a day to day basis. The nurse didn't say not to drive just not to drive more than he needs to so if he wants to go somewh.
Often there are no symptoms of prostate cancer and some you could associate with growing older and others can be masked by other problems you may have. You have a good treatment hospital there at the JR and I believe they have a Maggies Cancer Centre there where you can always go there and chat with other prostate cancer sufferers. I am not sure if they have a prostate cancer group at the Maggies Centre there but they do at our Maggies centre so do go and find out. It is a great place to go to for advice from their professionals who work there and to talk with other sufferers. Also I would go to the Prostate Cancer UK website and download their pamphlets in the Prostate Cancer Toolkit as this explains things for you at the point of diagnosi.
You keep posting and we'll keep listening John thats what this forum is here for.. You are understandably worried most of the time. The thing is to try and enjoy the moment. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not promised so we have to try and enjoy life moment by moment. No one does it all the time. No one can and always at the back of our minds is something about tomorrow next week or whatever but it is so much better if when we are thinking of tomorrow or worrying it is about getting to the airport on time or whether we remembered to do something for that trip or whatever unfortunately for us it is often an upcoming test or scan and it can be almost impossible to put that out of our minds. With your next test only 4 weeks away you are bou.
Hi Darrell and welcome I think that 33 would be too young to have PC, I have not heard of it in anyone under 40. There is obviously something going on though but sticking a camera up your penis is probably not the answer. It could be worth asking for a psa test just in case, I am sure that it would be normal but just double check and rule out PC. I would think that a MRI scan would be more meaningful as it would /could cover a bigger area See what others say. Best wishes Steve.
Hello. I'm hoping someone can give me some guidance..... I'm due to have prostate surgery in 4 weeks. Soon after surgery how have people coped through the night - what have you done or worn, how well does it work etc.? And after a while if you get some control back, what has your experience been of what to do through the night then? Thanks. I guess I have similar questions for daytime - what have you worn, how effective has it/they been, both in the early days and later? I appreciate any help people feel they can give, to help me know what to expect and to make sure I have the right things available when I need them! (I live in a little village and will be cut off from shops for the 6 weeks no-driving post-op so need to get whatever I'll ne.
I have been retired for quite a few years now so although I wasn't working I felt that I could have worked - had I had an office job and an understanding boss and could work shorter hours and some workign from home. Tell the cancer centre that you are hoping to continue working reduced hours during the radiotherapy and they may be able to timetable you in for either early or late slots they are usually quite accommodating. I had 4 weeks of RT and only had 3 or 4 hold ups but never for more than a matter of minutes apart from one time when the machine broke down and had to be repaired and we had to be slotted in on another machine - there were about 14 machines in my cancer centre and apart from that one day always had the same machine at pr.
Hello Webbo-2020 and welcome to the community. I am not from this group, but have had pelvic radiotherapy for bladder cancer, which I believe treatment and side effects are similar. It really depends on your job and how you are affected. Besides tiredness, I did not have any real side effects during treatment. I found it impracticable to work as the daily timetable I had differed every day. Although treatment is relatively quick, I found tings never went to time. There was always some delay or other, so you can never tell how long you will be there. Side effects for me kicked in after treatment finished with fatigue and erratic bowels. No one can predict how you will go as everyone if different, so it is a case of try it and see how it goes.
