Diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 1994 & had chemo (CHOP) for 6 months.
Recurrences every year until 2000 when I had an autologous bone marrow transplant. In the first few days of high dose chemo I suffered a heart attack resulting in 5 x Coronary artery by passes. ( after my blood recovered from the chemo)
6 months later I continued with the transplant expecting to get 10-15 years cancer free.. l achieved 13 months before my first recurrence of a 9.5 cm mass behind my liver.
Radiotherapy, 30 cycles of 4 field resulted in the neuking of my gall bladder and subsequent removal..
Another 11 months ans a golf ball sized mass in the lower lobe of my right lung....more Radio..
since all of this I have developed andropause and commenced TRT in the form of Reandron 1000 injections every 90 days..
Initially I was able to notice some benefit but now many years on there is no real benefit.
My testes have all but disappeared along with erections.. My mind is willing but my body unable to respond. I am considering ceasing treatment but I am wondering about the possibility of side effects..
Am I to become a candidate for prostate problems as I have BPH . What about further heart problems, osteoporosis, or any other nasties? I'm too old at 69 to be worried about gynecomastia but I guess it could enter the equation.
Has anyone else experienced similar?
I would greatly appreciate any input on this matter..
