... with my treatment.as prescribed by my doctor, which includes forty five days of radiation therapy. Halfway through my treatment I began to experience unusual hoarseness and throat congestion, which effects my vocal performance. My voice is raspy, and I am unable to hit higher notes within my vocal range, especially when singing certain vowel sounds such as "E". I feel that because of this, it has also contributed to mood swings including anxiety and depression. I have not consulted my doctor yet, but plan to do so very soon. I am considering not continuing taking the bicalutamide to see if it helps my condition. Any comments regarding my situation would be appreciated.
