My last PSA test provided me with a much wanted “bill” for a relief on the drugs.
I was initially confused for the level of T because it has decreased but such did not influence the level of the PSA. I inquired and the lab repeated the tests confirming the results. This laboratory uses assays with LLD of <0.01 for the PSA and <0.1 for Testosterone.
The good news comes from my doctor that will stop the LHRH agonist (Eligard) until the day when PSA starts to increase again. This is the start of my “Vacation”. The last shot will “officially” end its effectiveness in May; therefore, I expect an increase of testosterone then, which will give me a relief from the side effects.
Here is the chronology of the tests since the start of HT in Nov 2010;
Nov 2010 PSA=1.0; T=3.76 (Cyproterone 50 mg-1 month plus Eligard 6-month shot)
Sending roses to all my buddies.
