Went to my family doctor, complaining of sore legs, sore arms and a general feeling of being incredibly tired ..He said, it sounds like the hormones you are taking. I said I have emailed Dr. Norman (my urologist) about 2 months ago, complaining about the same thing.
There was no reply which I found strange. I asked him if I could drop down to the single dose Casodex . He said "Didnt you know" Dr Norman has left the profession.
Immediately went down to Urology Consultants, found this incredible oncologist/urologist (from South America)( Dr. Ricardo Rendan)
"You can either continue with the high dose regimen or drop it down to 1/day and take Lupron Depot.
This, I said was successful at one time but not any more. He said, "I am going to put you on Nilandron". It is far more effective than Lupron and is just as potent keeping your PSA down. Shots are 1/month but far more effective and you can rid of most of the hormone symptoms. This had just been approved in Europe and USA. He made a very interesting comment. He said: with so many men taking hormones, eventually, they are not going to work any more. I am chairing many committees here in Halifax (Dalhousie) for several trials that is going to put the onus on the medical profession to keep ahead of this.
Any comments--I was very impressed by this.
This man has trained in Europe, South America and Princess Margaret in Toronto( he knew all the guys I knew in the thermal ablation process)
