Post surgery and looking back the two years pre-diagnosis, I was severely fatigued. Despite 8+ hours of sleep, I would wake up feeling like I never slept. After work (desk jockey), I would come home and fall asleep soon after I sat in the chair. I thought I was just getting old.
After surgery, my energy level has done a 180 and I feel like I did in my 20's/30's. I wake up very refreshed and have plenty of energy the whole day. Looking back I'm convinced PCa was slowly shortening my life. It also seems like my immune system has improved, probably since my body no longer needs to focus on battling the PCa.
It has been nine months and I'm still pulling zeros. I wish you the same experience I've had with treatmen, it if not better.
