So dear Brothers ..
Saw the prostate cancer team at Duke University Hospital Friday .. here's a quick update.. "stage IV metastatic" with cancer in my left shoulder and possibly two ribs.. started on hormone therapy today (Lupron) . No significant side effects other than feeling a little flu like.
I Will need to get a CT scan of all the upper organs… lungs, liver pancreas etc on August 15... that will be the next big hurdle.. if positive for cancer than right to chemotherapy. If not then hormone therapy for six months..
Of course,I am stunned but I remain positive and determined!! As my angel guide, Molly said, "we are not just survivors we are "thrivers!"
There is still lots of hope for remission and 15 to 20% chance of "cure!" I absolutely love my doctors!
World class facility and Care!
Don't have a clue what I would do if Susan wasn't there in every way❤️ thank you BFF!!
Best to all of you on your journey !
