Agora, para mim, ficou pior

 

Em agosto completarei vinte anos desde que fui diagnosticado pela primeira vez com cäncer da próstata. Estou seguindo um tratamento intermitente usando Lupron Depot de seis meses. Fez o efeito desejado, e o PSA ficou indetectável. Parei um tempo e o PSA explodiu. Tive que voltar para o Lupron Depot, mas agora juntamente com a bicalutamida, para impedir uma possível explosão da testosterona. A qualidade da vida foi para o brejo. Fadiga, diarreia e mais. Olhem a lista dos efeitos colaterais da bicalutamida:
