Hi everyone, I'm 59 years old and have prostate cancer. Following some occasions having trouble passing urine I noticed blood spots in the loo, so off to the GP. Back in March my first PSA was 232!! After 2 months on Zoladex implant it has come down to 49 so going the right way. The hormone treatment has sorted my peeing problems and it made me realise I should have noticed a slower flow a while ago but it happens over a long period so is not that obvious. Had a truss biopsy that gave a Gleason of 4+3. CT scan showed an enlarged pelvic wall lymph node so the team suggested the hormone, Docetaxel and radiotherapy treatment. Had my second chemo yesterday and touch wood the side effects to date have not been as bad as expected, hair loss, tiredness and a few mouth issues such as taste. I'm due for 6 chemo's 3 weeks apart. Then on to the radiotherapy. I'll get my next PSA level in a couple of weeks so hopefully it will have fallen again, dreaming of the day it's in the 0. .. range a lot of you talk about on here.
Happy to help with any questions on this treatment plan.
