My brother (72)recently passed away after a long battle with prostate cancer,.He had radical prostate treatment but after a year his PSA increased significantly. He underwent radiation treatment then chemotherapy and last year radium injections. He had two, a month apart at the end of April, and had to stop further treatment because his red blood cell count decreased to extremely low levels and he felt extremely weak. He a had two blood transfusions two weeks apart (August 2017) to try to get his energy back.That worked for a few days then no more treatment was recommended. His pain intensified, despite the strong doses of pain medication he was prescribed and his health deteriorated fast. He passed away in October 2017. Question: was it wise for him to undergo radium treatment after chemo which weakens your system? Our family questions that.
