  • I know what it's like---I have to have meds to help with almost all bodily functions--nothing works right anymore.      At least I don't have cardio problems---yet.

    But pills to sleep, for nausea, anxiety, fatigue, constipation, urination, pain, and the cancer meds---Xtandi and Avodart, plus a monthly injection of Xgeva for the osteoporosis, it's difficult to keep track of the meds, and to try to live a semi-normal life, especially with the side effects from everything.    And at present, every weekday a trek to the cancer center for my radiation treatments, which is exhausting.     I do like seeing the radiation staff, though, they're so friendly and cheerful.        '

    And I have to have a paid caregiver coming in to assist with shopping, laundry, cleaing and escorting me to treatments and appointments.

    But I'm thankful that I can still walk, with the aid of crutches, and at least maintain a reasonable quality of life.
