Joyce -- i just move slower and take it easy. i'm pretty fortunate that my main job is recovering. there were times when a half flight of stairs would have my legs burning and my lungs gasping for breath. my lungs feel congested most of the time but i don't have trouble catching my breath unless i really exert myself.
like i said i have had alot of side effects but i've also had a lot of treatment this year. i'm nine weeks past my last lupron shot and i finished IGRT almost three months ago. the side effects now are joint stiffness, bloating, fatigue, weight gain etc.
PSA on 12/09: 6.8
no symptoms, no prostate enlargement
12/12 cores positive....gleason 3+4 = 7
HT, BT and IGRT
received 3rd and last lupron shot 9/14/10
