Fri, Jan 17 6:55pm · Living with Prostate Cancer: Meet others & introduce yourself in Prostate Cancer

As a newcomer to the Group, my prostate details are…
Diagnosed 2011 and treated with radiation then two years of three monthly injections of Zoladex. At the end of this period, PSA did not register or showed as 0.6.
PSA in 2016 had increased to 3.6 and PSMA scan showed cancer in lymph nodes and on lower ribs.
Three monthly Zoladex restarted.
PSMA 2018 showed a substantial reduction in previously revealed tumours.
Three monthly Zoladex continues and PSA remains in the low 3s.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 and underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation followed by five years of daily temoxifin. There is no indication of return.

Aortic heart valve was replaced with a biovalve (cow) 2014 and functions normally

Currently under treatment for diverticulitis but otherwise healthy except for inability to undertake any prolonged or strenuous physical activity.

Hi ColleenMy wife had surgery to remove a cancerous lobe of her right lung nine days ago.Before that I had no knowledge of post operative delirium. The delirium has been ranging from severe with hallucinations to light with some memory loss. Yesterday was very traumatic but today very much less.

Is PICS the same as post operative delirium?

Are there any specific strategies to deal successfully with delerium in a reasonably healthy 77 year old lady following major lung cancer surgery?
