Wow Xtandi is kicking my butt, It has a side effect of tearing down the muscular skeletal system of the body, for instance I have now developed a condition called costochondritis this is a strain of the ligaments in my chest, it has now been three weeks of severe pain in my chest, and just a great feeling of weakness, sometimes I had trouble just standing up from a chair, my legs would not move, I ma not having success with Xtandi, the side effects are terrible and on top of that my PSA has just doubled in 30 days from 22 to 45, wow, I am now terrified, I have got to retire from the work force, and consider end of life preparations, because I know the next step is
intravenous chemo, I hear the side effects from chemo are worse,
oh and the pain killers they give me make me nauseas, I am in a world of hurt.
thanks for listening, try to enjoy each day one at a time.
I will keep fighting,
