Well, here's my story. 66 years old, I was diagnosed back in June after a second biopsy, PSA 330, gleason 7 with indicators on bone scan and CT scan of lymph nodes. I started Lupron right away and Zytega/prednisone shortly after as soon as insurance allowed. My PSA dropped to 22 after a month, and continued to somewhere around 0.12 currently. Latest bone scan showed some reductions and another CT scan due soon with similar expectations.
I know I'm supposed to be positive, and overjoyed with the improvements. Haven't had medical issues my whole life until last year when I was diagnosed with HepC and treated for same with Harvoni, and now this. Toss in our own batch of life's stress, add the side effects of ADT, and well, I guess I have some work to do in that department.
But I am, working on it, and thankful to know there is a group like this. I look forward to being one of those 'encouraging' too! I've read lots of encouragement already; thanks to you all for that.
