I've been reading this forum for quite a while now and finally joined.
I've had Prostate Cancer for around 2 years now. Things looked great after my prostatectomy, but then my PSA started rising a year later. Got a PSMA scan and no mets were detectable.
Decided against radiation and went with ADT only. My plan is to do ADT intermittently to get the best quality of life possible. Just trying to manage this.
I've been on Lupron for just over a year now and about to start my first "vacation". Anyone else been down this road. Advice? Concerns?
Also looking to find the best supporting care in terms of diet, exercise, etc.
Thanks in advance for any help. Great to be here!
I had a similar recurrence at a much younger age. Salvage radiation without ADT gave me another 7.5 years of undetectable PSA with a lot fewer side effects than ADT.
They offered me radiation. I discussed it with my doctor. Considering my age and no mets, I decided on intermittent ADT.
My oncologist is widely seeing significantly less side effects with Relugolix as compared to Lupron.
