As my dad is about to start treatment (Radiation and hormone therapy) I’m feeling anxious and sad. He has no outward signs of being ill and it’s surreal that a psa score and scan showing one spot on his spine now has him at stage 4 and about to put his body through treatments that will make him sick.
I guess I’m after a positive boost based on his current stats. He was first diagnosed as Gleason 7 9 years ago and has had no treatment since his prostate removal then. A PSMA scan in sept last year was clear. His psa is now 1.4 and he has the single bone met.
Does this information point towards his pca being more slow growing and less aggressive? Or do we really have no idea and just have to wait and see?
I feel so helpless.
