My 84 yr. old husband had his last Lupron shot 10 months ago and his last dose of Bicalutamide 4 months ago. He was diagnosed in January 2016 with aggressive prostate cancer that was on the verge of metastasizing. Fortunately according to all the tests, it had not yet metastasized. He immediately began taking Bicalutamide and had his first Lupron shot in early February 2016. He received 9 wks. X 5 days of radiation treatment. His PSA dropped to below 0. He has been most frustrated the the loss of muscle strength in his arms and legs. It seemed to come and go. We were hopeful that this side effect would subside after he stopped with the medication, but it hasn't. It also caused him to develop a pot belly stomach, which has not gone down. He has always been a slender man, so this is upsetting to him. Any comments or insights would be greatly appreciated.
