Prostate cancer surgery in Feb of 2011, since that time I have had a number of issues. Cancer Brain for lack of a better term, depression, loss of energy, tiredness. I am a Viet Nam vet. So there are ptsd issues creeping back into my life. I have been going thru some of the postings and am seeing that there seems to be a lot of this in cancer surviors. My doctor says that I should not be seeing this. I was at stage T2C and final pathology report indicates that this might come back. My PSA numbers are moving up, but still in the undetectable range.
I do think and know that cancer surviors see life in a different sense. It is confusing to try and sort out all of the imformation at times.
The problem that I have at times is people that donot have cancer telling me how to treat this illiness.
Cancer is a life changing event.
I am trying to lead a normal life, but it is difficult.
Any input is welcomed.
