Hello guys n gals-
My wife determined that the ladies have the God given rights to the term ‘Hot Flash’. We have named my burning episodes ‘Power Surges’! It is so much more masculine- and with the ADT I am on, I need as much masculINity as I can get- 😬
2 months ago dx with Gleason 4-3, 10.6 PSA w about 20 bone Mets. I still have no real symptoms (other than the Power Surges). I started Lupron, Prednisone n Zytiga 7 weeks ago. I now have a .27 PSA! That result was certainly the brightest spot in the last 2 months.
I paddle board 7 days a week just before sun rise and then I have a short chat w the Big Man as I stand on my board in the middle of the lake as the sun rises over the trees. It is a Sunrise service everyday. It gives me a few moments of clarity to think about being the best husband, Dad and friend that I can be.
My wife and I then juice about 25 carrots, 3 apples, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and ginger. I drink about 3 big glasses of it everyday. Does it help? Who knows but between the new diet n going to the gym 3 days a week, I have lost 10 pounds.
Being relatively new to this new way of life, can someone help me understand what having an undetectable or in my case a .27 PSA really means? Does it mean that the cancer is not growing any more? Btw my T is now 57.
Thanks for being out there boys n girls- this blog and the guys who answered me about 5 weeks ago really helped me deal with the initial shock! However,I kept crying during times that I was telling friends and family about my situation. Not since my high school counselor had I ever sat done w a counselor. But I met a counselor in an infusion room while her Mother and I were both having a bag of curcumin dripped into our veins. 2 weeks later, in her office, I told her that I needed some help because I cried when telling my story to friends n family. After 2 hours and $250, I found out that I, and yes WE, are suppose to cry sometimes. Just saying-...
