Hi everyone, im new here but not new to PC. In late 2010 i was diagnosed with stage 4 , Gleason 7 (4+3) with a PSA of 44.
Had 39 radiation treatments and started eligaurd immeadiately. A year of that about drove me bonkers. Hot flashes, moody, depression...you name it. So they switched to lupron for the second year. I elected to stop the shots then and my PSA shot up to 4 from .01. Well that ended that short break!
From then on I've been on lupron and it worked up till october of this year my PSA jumed to 3.7. I go back for a 3 month test and visit first part of January. To see if it rises again and set up a plan of attack.
This has been a long road mainly from lupron or as some say simply lack of testoserone.
That's my story....
