I'm 54yo, and was diagnosed with stage 3/Gleason 9/Psa 36, prostate cancer in 2013. I ended up having a prostatectomy that same year. After surgery my Psa went down to 0.164 and slowly made a climb back up to 3.2 by the end of 2014. After doing some extensive reading, in 2015 I became experimental and tried an array of supplements recommended to me through a local LaC. Unfortunately, my cancer was aggressive enough that they weren't strong enough to hold back it's growth. By the end of that year I had developed a bone met on my T1 vertebrae and also on my right hip bone. Through my oncologist at UCSF I started Lupron injections in January 2016 and it eventually knocked my psa way back down. It stayed there for over a year and then I started to become resistant to the drug this year. My oncologist has recently started me on Lupron with Casodex (temporary) as we're awaiting the arrival of my Xtandi drug. During this time period my mets became active again and the met in my spine has now aggravated a nerve that travels to my inner groin making walking any distance a challenge. I'm scheduled with a radiologist next week to radiate both mets in hopes that will help. My fingers are crossed as I love to hike and stay active.
Thanks fo reading!
