Proton Beam Therapy - Comments on adding ADT? Yes or No?
So I am very early into my Proton Beam Therapy to treat my prostate cancer. My cancer was evaluated as "intermediate risk" — with a Gleason Score of 7 (4+3) and PSA of 7.9. I am 68 years old. I have had 4 sessions of my 28 scheduled Proton Therapy sessions. I, initially, decided to turn down 6 months of ADT — even though it was recommended. I did that primarily because I had heard that with my numbers I might not need ADT. Wondering if maybe I should reconsider? Anyone have any experience either pro or con taking 6 a month dose of ADT with their Proton Therapy to treat their prostate cancer? Appreciate any outcomes or experiences that anyone can share.
