Chask Posted October 2, 2019 Share Posted October 2, 2019 I was diagnosed in July 2013, prostatectomy and radiation by Feb 2014. ADT (Zoladex) for 12 months then a break until March 2017, when PSA had risen to 2.6. PSA nadir .07, then gradual rise to .46 when I then started on Aberaterone/Prednisone. PSA has hovered around the 1 mark since then. Point is I have been on continuous first line ADT for 2.5 years and 2nd line just over one year. My problem is that for the last 3 months I have been suffering a variety of minor infections, throat, chest, stomach, mouth. Am sick of anti biotics. Are there any ways to boost my immune system in the face of these immunity reducing hormones?. Should say I have generally only suffered mild side effects, though my strength has diminished. I eat reasonably healthily, and exercise regularly - 3km walk daily, golf twice a week and light weights. During my last mouth infection, Onco actually told me to stop the Aberaterone for a couple of weeks. Was nervous about that and only suspended for 1 week by which time the infection had largely cleared up. Appreciate any suggestions.
