Disability for cancer treatment side effects
My 50 year old husband has aggressive Gleason 9 prostate cancer, staged at IIIB, with lymph node involvement. After prostate removal and 10 weeks of radiation, his workplace short term disability period has ended. He is on 2 yrs of Lupron and daily Zytiga/Prednisone. He has to urinate about every hour, has fatigue, leg cramps, headaches, hot flashes, and is on an emotional roller-coaster. Although his work is home-based, it is stressful and he is not confident he can go back to work. Has anyone taken long term disability due to the side effects of non-terminal prostate cancer?
