I haven't written in a while, but as a refresh....my husband was diagnosed with a gleason 9 early January, had 40 imrt treatments and is now on lupron for 7 months. 3 weeks ago his psa (3 months after treatment) was .05. All good, thank the Lord.
He came down with flu like symptoms about a month ago, sore throat, bad cough, terrible weakness and difficulty breathing.
His gp said it was most likely flu or allergies. Gave him an antibiotic 2 weeks after symptoms got progressively worse. It's been a month and he is no better, it hurts his throat to talk and is out of breath with simple walking.
He is having an endoscopy tomorrow, we're not even sure why that was ordered but understand that they need to see what's going on in his throat etc.
Wondering if anyone has experienced this, could this be related to the cancer. I'm so scared right now and I know he is too. Tonight is the second time he's told me he's not sure if he'll make it through the night.
I'm hoping this has nothing to do with the cancer, his bone scan and ct scan came through clean.
If you have any input, I would appreciate hearing it.
Thanks so much
