Have had bone scan summer of 2008 and ct about
april 2007, before radiation all were clear. As of now going with casodex for 2 months as prescribed by oncologist and than going back to him to see how it has worked. If doesn't than I guess we cross that bridge when we come to it.
Thanks for all your well wishes. Cancer is a tough disease, but have a posative attitude, just hard sometimes when I get an ache or pain, especially in back, mind races and thinks has it spread, is it in the bones.
One day at a time, concentrating on posative thinking that the casodex will work. I knew when I was diagnosed that with such a high psa would be tough to treat. Have a caring oncologist and team that works with him, so I keep telling myself I have to trust him. It's just the what if's that are hard.
Good luck to everyone. I have a great spouse that keeps me going.
