Wanted to bring some good news to the forum! I listed husband's PSA results for the last 3 months. Has it really been that long? Yes, although we did manage to get in a great ten day vacation to the island of Lanai.
The news is that Tim’s PSA was <0.10 ng/ml three weeks after the Lupron shot. Requested the ultrasensitive assay just to be certain, and the next month it read <0.008 ng/ml (undetectable for the ultrasensitive method). So between the ADT hormones, Cyberknife to the spine, vegetarian diet and exercise, the PC recurrence appears to be under control at this time. No side effects. IHT will continue as and when PSA rises. I was surprised with the short first on ADT period. Considering taking Avodart for maintenance during the off period. Anyone have experience with that? Have appointment next week.
Best wishes to all, Jane
