Brought Chandon to fete the onco staff. Had 2 of my kids there too. PSA now at 10.2 (840 at Dx with a 0.1 nadir) - so got back on Lupron train after a Hormone Holiday with last shot on 03/31/2017. Got QoL for a while. Didn't wanna go castrate resistant - we'll see the effect on PSA. Fight on Brothers. Mele Kalikimaka

Its great to see that you got such a long hormone holiday. I expect that you will still respond to Lupron and enjoy many more years with your family.

Hello Dockam, was wondering, did you experience many side effects on Chemo?

Hello, I fasted 2 days before each chemo and that spared me most SE's except for hair loss. Google "fasting and chemotherapy" Also still doing IF (Intermittent Fasting) from 9pm at night to 1pm the next day - sipping on homemade veggie/tomato paste/curry broth. Taking 2000mg Metformin/day and got to that 0.1 PSA last year. I'll have at least 2 years more of Lupron shots every 3 months to reduce the T levels. theloopnewspaper.com/story/...
