How would I find a gay prostate cancer support group in Denver, Colorado?
I am eight months into a Prostate Clinical Study at the Urology Clinic of Colorado.
Every three months I receive a Lupron injection, which stops the production of testosterone, which the cancer is feeding on to grow. My PSA was 15, but now it is 0.50.
I am starting today my 5th week of nine weeks a series – five days a week of radiation therapy to stop the growth of cancer by eliminating its ability to split and grow new cells.
A prognosis is to continue on the Lupron shots for another year, while watching the PSA number. It is projected that by monitoring the number, I should be free of prostate cancer within two or three years.
