Cancer drug side-effects

Blog entry posted by Andrew, Feb 19, 2018.

I'm pretty sure I mentioned this in the PEM subforum, but tonight I feel compelled to blog about it. Maybe it will help to blog this. But I just had to get off the phone after sixteen minutes of talking. I was wiped out. This has been a pattern for me for months now. I'm on an anti-androgen drug as part of cancer control and it's kicking my butt. All my ME/CFS symptoms are are at least twice as bad now. I used to be able to talk 30 minutes. And it feels awful to have to tell someone I can't talk anymore after only fifteen minutes. Plus it's not really enough time to have a decent chat.

    The air starved side effect of ME/CFS probably isn't helping either. I've had to tell a few people lately that I do better with emails and texting and that phone conversations are really hard for me right now so I have a little idea of how you might feel.
