My husband's first PSA test 3 months after hormone therapy commenced is 0.00.... YIPPEE!!!!! Overjoyed! He received his 2nd injection and is feeling a little nauseous from it and woozy so far (just 3 days). Dr. plans to keep him on HT for 2 years and then give him a break until the PSA climbs again.
After going to every appt so far and getting bad news, we were worried! This was the greatest of news. I wanted to share it with all of you people so that if one person happens to be in a similar situation as my hubby's story, this will give them hope!
Thank you all so much for answering my questions and calming my fears. We will continue to laugh and love each day.
