Just had my monthly PSA result and it's at 1.3 with T at 146. Previous results: 0.1(nadir) for two months then 0.2, 0.5(T at 86) on 12/29/17
I had 15 chemos in 2015 and ADT(Lupron/Casodex) for 30 months - with Metformin 500mg 2x/day, supplements and exercise. GL7(4+3), PSA 840 at Dx. Mets to only L ureter lymph nodes. Surgery was ruled out. I opted out of radiation.
I found this IADT presentation:
So, I spoke with MedOnc about stopping the ADT and going on Holiday and it has taken 10 months for the T and PSA to tick up. The slide above says there is no data yet about pts on CHAARTED trial and IADT
"No data yet on IHT after upfront chemo
And the article had varying points to restart the ADT - upwards of PSA 15.
What do you guys think? I know I would freak if I let the PSA get to 15, but would a 2 be too soon. I emailed my MedOnc the results and he hasn't responded to my query on when to reinstitute.
