I have Gleason 8 IDC-P (rare and aggressive), but two months after RP I was lucky to find my PSA went to <.008. Although this is good news, my decipher score (.91) puts me at a very high risk of recurrence. I am about to start 39 sessions of aRT, and next step will depend on PSA results. My oncologist said that if PSA rises to .6, he would start ADT.
So I guess I have some time before having to worry about this, but I really would like to get feedback from those who are being administered ADT. I'm most interested in what you do to cope. Seems like the games ADT plays are equally emotional and physical. The emotional aspects really get my attention as coping with PCa and life in general is difficult enough. At the same time, one tends to hear all of the bad and little of the good. Obviously for those continuing taking ADT, the good must outweigh the bad.
Anyway hearing about the good, bad and the ugly would be very helpful. Thank you all in advance.
