Congratulations! I go for bloodwork every three months and hold my breath for the month before each test. I was diagnosed in Feb 2005 and have been on Casodex and Trelstar/Lupron ever since. My PSA dropped from 39.5 to undetectable and has stayed at or close to that level. My wife and I do not make long-term plans but plan our activities (primairily trips) after each good visit to the doctor.
I have a few issues that, hopefully, I can get some good imput to point me in the correct direction.
- I continue to be on Casodex because my Oncologist indicates the combined blocade is working. Is this a normal protocol?
- I have been experiencing pain on one nipple. The pain keeps getting worse. My doctor said this is normal and once possible solution is radiation. Any others with this experience?
- Am I the only one who gets depressed at night, often making sleep difficult.
Any input would be appreciated.
