    Dear JoJo.

    I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with a rising PSA. Have your Dr. check with the pharmecutical company that makes Casodex. In some instances, when patients cannot afford the drug, the pharmecutical company will get you the drug free of charge.

    My husband had prostate cancer of 2003 and has being doing well since that time. He is 65 now but, I pray constantly that he will not have a recurrence.

    Best wishes,
