Hi all - I have not posted in a while.
I am 50 years old. I was diagnosed with stage 4 prostrate cancer about 3-1/2 years ago. It was in my lymph system and most all my bones. My initial PSA was 1,882
Since then I did 6 rounds of chemo, 3 rounds of Provenge. I am presently taking Casodex (daily) and Lupron every 6 months. I also take 600 mg of calcium 2 times a day. I try to eat good. Every morning I have apples, strawberries, bananas and granola with unsweetened almond milk, for lunch I have black beans and long grain wild rice and maybe a few spoonfuls of peanut butter. For dinner I normally have a salad and what meat my wife cooks. I also drink turmeric tea and I and add two capsules for turmeric in 2 cups.
Right now my PSA is below 1 per the last PET-scan I had there is no uptake in my bones or lymph system and no cancer in my organs.
My doctor says I need to relax and enjoy things now. However I want to keep fighting and I do not want this to come back and not have time to fight it.
I am asking what you guys would do? Should I relax or are there other things I should look into.
Thanks in advance. I am really glad I found this site.
