Hello to all my Brothers in arms, got my blood work back today PSA still undetectable,all other counts are normal. I go to my MO on August 1st. Hope he is as pleased as I am. I still feel better then I have in years and hope it stays that way. I guess the Zytiga is doing a good job. I wish all of you the same good luck. I know it's just a bandaid but I'll take whatever I can get. Have a wonderful blessed weekend everyone. Leo
6 Months So far So good !!!! - Advanced Prostate...
Hello Leo… Just what I needed to hear tonight… I was diagnosed on July 3 with Gleason of 4+5 and a PSA of 4.7 .. I have since had CT scan that showed no mets but a bone scan that showed three suspicious areas yet to be confirmed..
after three hours with insurance companies I was able to get my insurance in the right place at the right time and have been accepted into The Duke University Hospital's ..prostate cancer multi-disciplinary program!
I meet with the three top doctors individually and then will have a solid battle plan…
My appointment is for August 10 but I'm on a waiting list for August 3😄
I’m sure you continue to be an example of what today’s medicine can do and what a person with a positive attitude can accomplish !
Love this group of courageous guys !
Thanks Robert I was diagnosed
Feb 27th a date I will never forget. I was also 4&5 Gleason across the board, bone Mets, and lymph nodes affected. I have the utmost respect and admiration for my Doctors and their staff I'm treated like family and not just a number. I was given Hormone therapy as a first line of treatment and it seems to be working at least for now. I have very little side effects and my quality of life has not changed to drastically. I keep a positive attitude cancer hates that and have the total support of my family and friends. I love this forum ,it is very important to do your research and never give up, this is a great place to start. All my best to you my friend. Leo
