Wow, you are a warrior. I'm new to all this and much appreciate your view and what you have gone through. Of the medications what do you think helped most other than the Lupron? I had PSA of 30, Lupron took it down to .02 Gleason score of 10 so very aggressive. Chemo is to help get on top of it. Like you never will be Cancer free, but managing it best we can.

We have not gone to chemotherapy yet. Bicalutamide worked in conjunction with Lupron for most of a year. Enzalutamide is very expensive but seems to be working thus far. I started getting Zolodrondric Acid infusions in April to help strengthen bones. It is a monthly infusion so another comes Thursday. It's hard to say one drug is better than another because so much depends on the specifics of each individual case. No two A Like (that's what I call my woodshop projects also). I have great faith and trust in my oncologist and I understand how he makes decisions based on established protocols so I follow his lead.
