My Dad had been doing wonderfully well on Casodex+Lupron for the last 3 months. His PSA had dropped, he was able to take walks, do some things around the house, had his sleeping pattern close to normal, was gaining weight (a good thing in his case - he is about 20lbs under his normal weight. The loss was concurrent with the PC). Two weekends ago, he took a walking tour and did about triple his normal amount of walking. He slept poorly that night, awoke complaining of pain in his hips/legs and has basically regressed since then to where he was prior to starting the Casodex+Lupron (eating poorly, extreme fatigue/weakness, chills at points, creakiness in his joints). He did sleep well last night and has slept most of today and says the pain is significantly reduced, but he is still incredibly tired. Has anyone had this experience? Is there anything you did that helped? Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions.
Best wishes to everyone fighting the Beast!
