Hi, I am in Colorado. Diagnosed with Stage IV Prostate Cancer in July.
Oncologist suggest Lupron one month shot. Cease Lupron when PSA lowers. I intend to use concentrated forms of cannabis oils to hit the cancer hard during the Lupron one month trial. Problem is....I started the Casodex intending to start the Lupron a week later but did not. Casadex did much relieve prostate pain but I fear caused side effects a can barely tolerate-anxiety, loss of appetite, mood swings, anger and crying, the worst is the shortness of breath during an anxiety attack.....heavy constricted feeling around chest and torso...dizzy.....faint.
Is there on earth another process that does not messing with hormones to treat my cancer now in combo with the
cannabis. I am not a candidate for chemo or surgery. I have had no treatment for my cancer other than the initial cannabis and Casodex. Help. I get that a trade off is usually necessary in weighing treatment options. I am concerned since time is of the essence it would seem. Rest. exercise, nutrition, mental health , maintenance cannabis once the PSA lowered acceptably. I worry about the risk of heart or lung function degradation while on Lupron. If I use Lupron no longer than a month might I not have the hard experience that many folk experience while taking Lupron...............right?
Thanks very much,
