I am here for my Dad whom was diagnosed almost 4 years ago with Stage 4 prostate Cancer, Gleason 10, PSA 32 cancer mets located in right hip, lymph nodes, T11 spine, and 2 liver lesions. At the time of diagnosis my Dad was 60 years old and is now 64. When my Dad was initially diagnosed he was experiencing severe pain on the right side of his body that eventually landed him in the ER and then he was transported to NIH/Walter Reed for 10 days.
His PSA has gone from a 32 down to a 0.06 within 3 years and has remained a 0.06 for the past 9 months.
Despite his odds looking bleak initially he still manages to exercise everyday and 3 days in the Gym doing Cardio and lifting weights. He has always been a pescatarian and mainly eats fruits and vegetables.
The only symptoms I have seen so far this year is that he appears to be tired easily and complains of back pain on occasion, he also looses his balance if he gets up from the table quickly.
My Dad is very optimistic and somewhat in denial but I guess if this is what has been keeping him somewhat healthy then I am all for it.
My Dad has only been on Zoladex and briefly Casodex, also Degerelix in the past 4 years. He hasn't had a Cat Scan since 2013.
