Okay, dad got his bone scan and the other scan results back today and both were negative, so he is a happy camper, and I am too. I could hear him in the background as my stepmom talked to me, with the "whoohoo!' going on. :)
I know the feeling..At least twice.
Now they are saying they want to do radiation and hormone therapy, the latter to reduce testosterone. I asked about some of the other options you folks have offered, and dad's wife said, "No, doc thinks, at your dad's age, this is the best way to go."
I understand that, I am a student of that particular game. But what if it happens when you are 54 rather than 74. Does anything change? I am not complaining by any means. I am just wondering because this particular 74 year old is stronger than me right now.
In any event, does hormone therapy and radiation sound like a good strategy for a healthy 74 year old man, does it sound like the best therapy?
You all have been there.
You tell me.
