... 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.

I am having similar problems and am nearing the halfway point in my prostate radiation treatments. My voice doesn't always respond, especially when I am laying down. Seems to get better with a shot of water and standing position. Did you ever quit the bicalutamide?
My taste buds are not normal any more and I wonder if it isn't the lupren shot or perhaps the bicalutamide.
