    Hormone therapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Mood swings, anxious, fatigued. But necessary. We trust our doctor that it helps decrease the cancer risks. So that makes it worth the side effects.

    Easy to Do: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA

    Internal and external radiation combined

    Radiation

    No pain according to my husband but it always makes him tired, sometimes sick to his stomach, sometimes dizzy, no appetite. Some bladder issues, but not bad.

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree

    Depression/Anxiety

    Side Effects

    Both of us are depressed. He has night sweats, anxiety attacks. Feels like he wont be able to return to work or want to. I want him to try and walk a little, but he mostly sleeps and watches TV.
