Does anyone have experience working with university of Iowa hospital urology?

Hi all. I am new to this whole experience so I will share a little about what is happening. In November 2017, I had a PSA of 8.1 in a regular annual checkup. My next PSA in January 2019 read 196.7. We set a meeting with urology at the VA for February 2019 and had another reading, this time 541. We started hormone treatment with bicalutamide (sp?) and scheduled a biopsy for March 1. Those results confirmed cancer with Gleason score of 10. Bone scan an CTscan followed on March 13. Those results are not yet in. Scheduled to meet on March 25 to get results and for an Elligard injection that day.

The whole thing of course is new so have been working to remain positive but uncertainty is hard. Waiting for test results is hard.

What questions should I ask regarding treatment options going forward? Is leg fatigue and body fatigue normal?
