I have had a prostatectomy in March 2014 and the tumor was given a Gleason score of 4+3. When my PSA rose to 0.91, I received radiation treatments in June 2015, causing my PSA to decrease to 0.63. Last fall, however, my PSA had risen to 16.8, and I commenced combined hormone therapy (Lupron) and chemotherapy (docetaxel) in late December 2017. Before starting this treatment, a CT scan was conducted in late November 2017, which identified four nodules determined to be "concerning for metastases" on my right lung: a 9x8x8 mm nodule and a 9x8x7 mm nodule, both in the right upper lobe; a 5x4 mm nodule in the right middle lobe; and a 6x3 mm nodule on the right major fissure. I now have completed three of six docetaxel infusions, and another CT scan was just completed that found: one of the nodules in the right upper lobe "has resolved;" the other nodule in the right upper lobe now measures 3x1 mm; the nodule in the right middle lobe now measures 3x2; and the nodule in the right major fissure "nearly entirely resolved". My PSA now is <0.1. I find this very encouraging, but it is my understanding that PC metastases are not eliminated by either hormone or chemo therapy. Does the use of the term "resolved" merely mean that the tumor is no longer detectible by a CT scan or does it mean something more?
