My name is Haniff. I am 58 years old now and I was diagnosed with stage 4 advanced prostate cancer in October 2017, which had metastasized to my lymph nodes with a PSA count of 192 . I was given casodex when admitted to hospital and a biopsy was done by my urologist, who is still seeing me every three months. The good doctors over at National Cancer Centre, Singapore, where I reside suggested I do 6 rounds of Chemotherapy.
I completed the six rounds of chemo starting in January 2018 which ended on April 17, 2018. At the same time of my chemo treatment, I was on hormone jabs Luprin given at three months interval. After my chemo, I have been on the same Luprin inoculations since, given at 3 month intervals till to date. My PSA has dropped to 1.93 at the last count on 6 July 2018.
What should I do next? My urologist says to stay on the hormone jabs and monitor the situation. Personally, I feel that I should be doing more or am I just anxious and worried that I don't seem to be doing anything else. On my part, I exercise quite regularly, take supplements and calcium tablets and do vegetable and fruit juicing. I have lost quite a lot of weight (from 83 kg to 75 kg now) and feel much lighter and better. I am still working as a civil servant and hope to retire soon.
I will appreciate any advice or suggestions to help me in my next course of action.
A Big Thank you to all in advance
