Thanks for the info. Here is my info. Found lumps and bumps on yr exam.
Out of 16 samples 14 were pos. Surgery right away. Had radical surgery. Took everything and surrounding tissue. The doc at md Anderson said I had stage 4. Was put on lupron but side effects so serve couldn't take so was put on casidex. Which worked till lately when it started back firing. Doc said that happens. Psa doubled and tripled in very short succession. PSA up to 11.6 testosterone at 687. At time of surgery they took everything so should have no psa or testosterone. Doc put me back on lupron 3mts ago. Had the usual side effects but not as bad as first time. Cancer has met to 5 bones plus spinal column. Going back to doc next week. My wife is going with me to ask tons of questions. I don't ask so doc doesn't say. Don't know Gleason number. I have a lot of back pain and have a pain mang doc. No intrest in food and have lost some weight. Not please with current doc, not aggressive enough. So may change after this visit. I have a persistent cough which produces lots of flem. This has been going on for mts. I drink a couple beers and smoke cigars. I am also tired all the time. Doc also has me on finasteride 5 mg daily. Don't fill like lupron is working but will see in a week. Doc also said if lupron doesn't work there are experimental drugs he may try. Does all this sound like my time is short.
