  • 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
