      One of the biggest culprit that has a permeant affect on sleep is steroids. Everyone who I have talked with that has been on high doses of steroids is plagued with sleep issues.. Before I had cancer I was given a high dose of sol Medrol for neurological issues. That was over 30 years ago and I have had issues with sleep ever since. Now, with cancer treatment with dexamethasone 7 years ago I get between 4 to 6 hours. Currently undergoing treatment and, well, it is almost 4:00am and I've been up for about an hour!

      Gee, Charlie, I wish I'd know you were up and on What Next at 4:00 AM. I was wide awake too. We could have had a chat. Sleepless night make getting through the day tough.

      I'm the same.. I take sleeping pills prescribed and sometimes those don't help at all or I'm sleeping 11-12 hrs and still feel like I need a nap to get through my nausea and anxiety and its been over a year since my reoccurance.

      My Dad had prostate cancer and would periodically have to have a catheter put in. He would be in terrible pain and not be able to go. I suggest to have it checked for sure.

      A friend has prostate cancer and he is having this issue a lot. His prostate swells up and squeezes the tube coming out of the bladder and he can't go. You better get that checked, he wound up in the hospital.
