Thanks for sharing. I agree with his thought process. You can see from my signature, that my father was on Casodex for the HT flare, but now is on Lupron alone. I often wonder if he should be on Avodart too. I think it would be really difficult to convince him to take anything else at this point. Good luck and keep us posted!
