Defeating Prostate Cancer

Posted by pnowlan78 @pnowlan78, Jan 10 2:52am

Diagnosed @age 76 PSA 20 Gleeson Score 9 all the urologists wanted to take it out.After interviewing 12 men who had the cut done It scared the wits out of me !The first urologist lost his temper with me for not having it cut out!The second showed how he would do plastic insert with a pump in the scrotum.I complemented him on his nice desk and left.The third one said it could be saved.So a TURP that backfired with me in .ICU .9 weeks Radiation Followed with testosterone reducing injections Now PSA is 0.06,Am I in for pain once the Lupron Stops?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Prostate Cancer Support Group.

Diagnosed at 76, psa off the charts, Gleason score of 10.

On lupron for about a year and a half. Had a successful trip somewhere along the way. Treatment protocol was/is immunotherapy.

Been off lupron for about a year and a half now. No pain associated with it, but all treatments have drastically cut in to my strength and stamina. Sex life went from great to almost non-existent.

Walk/Swim/Tai-Chi/Recumbent Bike, lite weights, bands, with meditation, creative writing, reading, check in with buddies couple times per week. Try to care for the soul of myself and others.

Make sure the men in your family of a certain age know their PSA number and ask all your friends, particularly younger ones, “Do you know your PSA number?” Yes, be nosy.

Stage 4 grade 5
Lupron every 3 months and Zytiga 2x day.
Recent CT scan showed tumors are shrinking. Side affects are awful, but I manage. PSA is going down.
