As many of you know, Les went to MD Anderson in Houston for testing and re-evaluation by his doctors there. I know you've been waiting to hear word on his results as I was. He can’t post at the moment and gave me permission to give this update.
This is from an email Les sent this morning:
“Some of the nodules have gotten a little larger and my PSA, which has been <0.1 (undetectable) for three years, is now 0.5. I'm to go back to Houston in four months.”
The nodules he speaks of are in his lungs. Les is back on 4 month Lupron shots. His T level is currently 12, down from 23 in August.
Les went out there with a new attitude and a hopeful heart...this is a huge blow, so understandably, he & his wife need time to digest this and regroup.
As always he has our support and love and he does know this.
