As some of you might know last week I went to MD Anderson to get guidance for the head of the PCa department, Dr. L.
We had to pull a few strings to get in to see him, but it was worth it.
He did not subscribe anything new. He did not enroll me in a clinical trial. He did not order any testing besides the blood work.
What he did do is send me home, and that's a good thing!
he told us we had done everything right over the last four years and the keep it up! He said we needed to remain and let the chemo to continue to work.
He added a few new blood markers to watch (I'll share later) and wished us luck and said he hoped we didn't need to come back to see him for a long time.
To some of you reading this, it might seem strange? How can you be happy with this David? Your PSA is in the mid-thirties?
The thing is I'm stable, and I'm asymptomatic.
Not sure what else to say? We returned to KC and got on with our lives. I played disc golf yesterday and today and we spent Easter in a house full of family!
Peace be with you all - good night!
