Wow, I just got my blood test results, I am shocked! :
I am on Lupron and Casodex and my PSA doubled from 14 to 29 in the last two months
now I am really scared and feeling really bad...
now I know I have to go to the next series of drugs...
which I understand is a handful of pills and a lot worse side effects
I already have chemo brain and am in a fog from the current drugs
please PLEASE tell me how I am supposed to cope with this latest developments.
my wife does not want me to go home to the Lord yet.
what do I do now?
I have a doctor appointment with my oncologist next week.
