Starting point in july 2017 age 55
spine bone mets too many to count
Soft tissue tumor on spine
Extensive nodal involvement
Bone marrow involvement
Back nerve pain so bad i had to be initially hospitalized for 7 days.
Well, today after 10 rounds of chemo my PSA is still undetectable. New bone marrow biopsy is clear. MO says tumor markers are undetectable. And latest CT scan no longer shows visible sign of cancer!!!! This is an exceptional result that i realize not everyone achieves - but wanted to share as a bright spot of hope.
I meet with MO again next week to plan out my continued check ins. I am stopping chemo, but will of course stay on lupron, and zometa continues as well.
For those of you coming off chemo (but still on lupron) - does fatigue get better after chemo? Or just continue as same from lupron? Any issues coming off of prednisone? Ive been on it 6 months now.
Also, i never planned on prostate removal since i started stage 4. Would it make sense now?
I feel good.
