Went to USC in L.A. today to meet with Dr. David Quinn. I met with him two years ago on a consultation just to make sure that my onc treating me was on the mark (2nd opinion). Today our meeting went better than the first on 2 years ago. I still have some options to treat my advanced, aggressive prostate cancer. I have to mail my scans to Dr. Quinn and he is contacting my current onc to discuss me and my situation. I have been feeling very fatigued lately and I had to stop my Jevtana chemo at this moment (2 months) because of neutropenic fever which landed me in the hospital for over 12 days. Currently taking Ritalin to try and spark me up but today was a long day of waiting and this evening I am very fatigued. Any way, does anyone have information about Dr. David Quinn at USC? My onc had me taking Megastrol and Dr. Quinn suggested I stop this immediately as this could cause a growing of my already aggressive cancer. Is anyone else out there suffering from fatigue? I do not have an appetite either. Both of these really hit me after my visit to the hospital and it is a slow come back process. I am concerned and don't know what to think right now. I would love to hear others stories about fatigue, and appetite loss.
