Blessings for your minne-sota miracle, @jogger01. I'm glad that you count the members of this forum as part of your support system. I'll be interested to hear your treatment plans once they're in place. All the best.

Met with my radiation oncologist this week, and after review of my imaging results along with additional consultation with my urology specialist, a bone biopsy was recommended to further assess recently discovered tail bone lesion. Thankfully the bone biopsy results have come back negative (whew again). I am so pleased with my mayo team being extra thorough as the treatment plan would have involved chemo if result had come back positive. I will be starting androgen depravation therapy (ADT) followed up with radiation therapy (35 doses) to address the prostate cancer bed area recurrence evident from prior choline pet scan. Believe the team has me on a successful path for full cure….hopefully the ADT side affects are minor and manageable. The doctors emphasize the value of excercise while undergoing ADT, so my mission will be to remain positive and consistently keep up with jogging, even if fatigued….SKOL!
