I am considering surgical castration as an option to chemical treatment for PCa. I have been taking Lupron/Zytiga + prednisone for nearly a year. The results have been excellent--PSA undetectable--and I have grown used to the side effects, which, in my case, have not been unendurable. Still, I wonder if the surgery might be the most expedient option. Please see my profile for specifics. I will soon be 66, did not have my prostate removed, but received RP, seed implantation and one dose of cryo. I want to hear from men who have had surgery.
