Made difficult decision to begin hospice, key reason was three life threatening illnesses, advanced prostate cancer, MDS (form of bone marrow cancer) and Sarcoidosis affecting my lungs now functioning at less than 30% capacity.
Ironic prostate cancer is well contained after three years and eight months, original PSA 147 with extensive bone mets, last PSA was 0.34 using only hormone shots and bicalutamide. In my situation have started hospice for the Sarcoidosis, lung impairment, but am able to continue my cancer treatments outside of hospice using Medicare and my supplement. Key advantage is if the breathing difficulty somehow stabilizes, I didn’t want to look back and wished had continued cancer treatments.
Appreciate everyone on the site, I learned a lot, received encouragement, and been provided with new insights. I place my faith in the good Lord and understand I’ve always been in His hands. Thank you, cancer warriors all.
