Hi all I joined forum December 2018, in Feb 2006 was diagnosed with Addisons it means some of my glands don't work and I have to take permanent medication(steroids) to stay alive. On February 2016 was diagnosed with cancer I'm on permanent hormone therapy (decapeptyl) and chemotherapy(docetaxel) when needed to. The cancer has gone from the prostate to lymph nodes to, ribs, pelvis, spine and one lung. I'm living a fairly normal life with my uninvited guest,. i Also look after my disabled wife who needs 24/7care she has Alzheimers and parkinsons +other things , carers come in morning to help me wash my wife.. If anyone interested my psa was 1581. Gleason 8 stage 4 T3B N1 M1B .The last 18 months I've been on new meds (Enzalutamide) it what they give to men who want a sex change, really knocked me for 6to start with luckily dose has been lowered and health improved still got low BP so got to take it easy, no energy at all but keeping positive always,as im alive and keeping going.
Big words are :- metastatic bony metastases - prostate adenocarcinoma :- retro peritoneal lymphadenopathy. I have other problems as well but these are the main ones. Best wishes to you all reading this, .... Billy
