Hi everyone, hope you are all ok
Sorry for the rant, I am just feeling so hopeless and don't know where to turn.
I had my 3rd Prostap injection on Friday and I keep hoping the side effects will get better. I have been pain free for the last couple of months which is amazing, but I'm so drained.
The hot flushes and night sweats are horrible and disturb my sleep and I constantly feel like I have no energy. I am beginning to feel like a broken record at work. I have booked a few days off here and there, had some working from home days and come in late when I struggle in the mornings but I feel like they must be getting sick of it. They have been so helpful and understanding so I am sure this isn't the case, but all I keep hearing is myself saying how tired I am, same excuse every time.
I have thought about trying HRT but I am worried the pain will start coming back if I do. I just feel so fed up. I am normally active and energetic but I just can't find it in me right now. It feels like I am letting everyone down.
Providing the Prostap injections continue to take the pain away, I am looking at another surgery toward the end of the year ( I had my first Oct 16). I am so sick of all of this, and you guys are the only ones who properly understand how I feel.
I would like children more than anything (I'm 30) but my long term boyfriend keeps telling me he is not ready to start trying yet. It has already been explained to me that I could struggle to conceive and get to full term, so I am trying to get through this as quickly as possible to see if my other half has a change of heart by the time I've had my next surgery (as time is of the essence), which is why I'm reluctant to try HRT - I don't want anything to delay their decision for a second lap.
Has anyone got any tips as to how I can perk myself back up while I'm on Prostap so I can stop making weak excuses and start trying to live my life again?
Sorry again for the rant, I just don't know where to turn
