Hi Gerry Great that your ADT holiday is now over 8 months! At what PSA will you decide that your present holiday is over (until the next one)?

Hi Darryl

Some where in the 2.0-3.0 range.

I have an oncologist at Dana-Farber in Boston.

My pathology after surgery was pt3b GS 4+5

Second opinion at Dana was pt3b GS 8+t5 = GS 9

That was 9 years ago

My oncologist says I respond extremely wall to first line adt.

My second holiday was longer than my first.

No casodex this time just 2 three monthly shorts of Lupron.

Best wishes to all

Hi Darryl,

I am planning to bring my brother to Dana Farber soon. He has stage 4 prostate cancer.

I would like your suggestion as to a doctor there.

If you have an opinion, please let me know.

Thanks, Annette
