My prostate cancer pills are reactin with my MH pills causing me to black out
I can't stop taking my MH pills cause they are the only ones that work for me,
same as the cancer pills, I can't keep blacking out cause I will hurt myself one day, I'v been lucky so far, I'm sort of between the devil and a hard rock unless there are some other options to keep my bood pressuer up.

What an awful situation to be in. Does your dr have any advice? It is awful when we can only take a certain mh medication and they cause side effects. I am really sorry you are going through this.

Definitely tell your oncologist. They may have other cancer meds they can prescribe you.

Clearly you have to switch one. It's not fun if they work in themselves, but I don't see other options. And who knows, maybe you get new ones that work even better!

I have a friend who is aged 63 who has stage 2 aggressive prostate cancer. He didn't want the
operation so he is getting hormone shots and radiation. Been 5 wks now and he says he feels fine and feels normal. He goes everyday for the rad. I know 2 other people who had rad a few yrs ago and they are fine.

The operation will get rid of ALL the cancer as long as it did not spread to the bones. I think the operation is the better choice, but if you are young it will make you impotent and can't have sex.

Oh that’s good, fast service, if I have my dates correct. And everything else is balancing better and all? I hope those prostate pills do what they are supposed to for you. If you want I’ll pray for?
