I have had prostate cancer for 16 years. Had RP in 2002, no clear margins, Gleason 6 - 8. Had radiation in 2003, psa undetectable until 2005. Psa slowly rising until finally to 4.0 in 2012. Started on intermittent Cassodex for 2 years. Positive metastatic scan in 2015 - 6 bone spots - continued Cassodex full time and psa today is 0.96 and no new metastatic spots.
Doctor is pushing to go on Lupron instead of Cassodex. Really do not want the Lupron side effects. Any thoughts or experiences would really be appreciated.
