I never imagined that I would be writing this positive post almost 4 years after my dreadful PC DX (2014) with a PSA of 209 and bone mets on pelvis to boot.
I have been on Degalirix (Firmagon) injections on a monthly basis since then as well 50 mg of Casodex daily and today I just had full labs showing that I am still undetectable ( PSA <0.02) and all other blood work is perfect. (check my profile)
My Oncologist says that I am well above average but he has a patient who is going on his 11th year and still of first line HT....
However, the HT treatments have taken a toll on my bone density. Bone scans clean but bone density shows very mild Osteopenia. Oncologist wants me to start once every 6 months shot of Prolia next month after I get some dental work cleared up.
It has been a long battle and other than occasional days when I am fatigued, for the most part, I remain very active and take long 5+ miles walk on a daily basis. I also, finally, have been able to lose a few lbs. thanks to dietary changes. I am still able to drink a couple glasses of good California Cabernet every night. Liver labs still perfect so the red wine will keep going down the hatch every night
I check in on all of you on a regular basis and I am hoping that my positive results give hope to all of you Battle Bros.
I am also on Healing well forum and go by the name "geop" on that forum
