    After 3 months of Casodex 50mg and Soladex 3.6 Mg, the PSA dropped from 57.5 to 1.75. But this only because I daily L-Lysine 1000 mg take. L-Lysine 1000 mg stabilizes the immune system The only drawback of Casodex and Soladex, water in the legs. Kind regards. Herbert

    Taking Casodex during the period between diagnosis and surgery (removal of the prostate), a total of 30 tablets. Breast growth started about 3 weeks after the operation or cessation of taking Casodex. After 9 months liposuction by a plastic surgeon (local anesthesia). After another 9 months condition as before liposuction. Doctors recommend removal of the mammary glands (general anesthesia).

    Now, after 6 months of taking bicalutamide 150mg, the PSA level has dropped to 0.69 … from the original 12.5 … but mood swings, sweats and full unfamiliar depressive sensations are absolutely not brilliant. Would like to screw back time and never let the breast enlargement begun by bicalutamide be irradiated. The stuff works, but is for a man the absolute Oberhorror. Liver makes a boom in their values and I am flat from noon. One can recommend the stuff, if one realizes that it helps in a prostate cancer … but takes the rest in purchasing. Libido is unchanged, clean Orgassi very fine, is nothing to clean, but dry and easy pflop in contrast to earlier weia real doll was a real flop … just extended the life … must take man in buy … Therefore, the devil stuff can be recommended to continue …

    Side effects: Breast growth

    First intake was on 29.08.2013 Today, just 7 weeks later, my PSA value has dropped from 12.5 to 1.35. Which is why I also canceled my planning CT on 4.-5.-6.11 and start of irradiation 14.11.2013 in the Radio-Linac C in Tübingen. Tomorrow should be implanted a so-called spacer-gel insert between the intestine and the prostate. Now have complete confidence in my urologist and just take the chemical club with me. I have nothing to lose. Only gain …. Breast growth with exciting warts in Minitittiform … but can not compete with my wife but-potency has not changed, with much skill we are lucky, but without having to clean anything. Can only recommend to anyone to give advice in his Uro Spezie if trust exists. I like to drive a taxi …. and probably for a very long time in the pension.

    Casodex for Prostate carcinoma

    The side effects of Casodex were very significant for me! so I had to drop it: hot flashes, weight gain, massive gynaecomastia (breast growth), diarrhea, muscle spasms. After discontinuation, these side effects were partly due to weight gain and gynecomastia.

    Side effects: Hot flashes
