This is my first post on this site, but have been reading posts here since my diagnosis in December 2017. So my background is that I'm 43, have a young family, lived a healthy lifestyle with lots of exercise. I had symptoms of lower back ache (mild) but had a car accident 18 months previuosly, I went to the doctor as I had family history with my dad going through this last year. Early December I had tests showing a PSA of 55 (now risen to 68), Gleason score of 9, Mets showing spread to pelvis, spine, ribs, sternum and shoulders. I was given a very bleak outlook from my initial specialist which literally threw me off a cliff for a while. I decided to get a second opinion on treatment which gave a very different pathway and life expectancy. I am now on monthly hormone blocker injections, daily Zytiga tablets, monthly bone infusions. I also take POMI-T and eat as cleanly as possible, no read meat/chicken, no alcohol/sodas, limited refined sugar. The side effects are currently ok and I'm finding swimming and walking are helping with energy levels. While I am very new to 'living' with cancer, I am determined that it shouldn't consume my family's lives. I am aware this is mainly an older mans cancer, but it does hit younger guys too, I am living proof of that, I would be interested to hear from people with similar experiences who are of a similar age.
