    The things one goes through with prostrate cancer treatment will certainly cause some depression and anxiety. With Radiation treatments and Lupron shots my energy levels are decreased by at least 50%. The enlarged breasts and lack of libido are there also. I have gained some prolong of life but the price has been high.

    @DDahl, you sound unfortunately like a lot of folks who’ve posted here. The loss of energy is often mentioned and I’ve yet to hear a really good option for combatting it. Maybe a matter of acceptance and napping? The price is high indeed. This article talks about the decisions men have to make and the balance between treatment and quality of life: https://prostatecancer.net/qol-research/. I also wanted to call your attention to this link to the Community page: https://prostatecancer.net/community/. Feel free to check out the recent activity and comment back to others. – Nina, ProstateCancer.net Team
