thanks for writing Steve. I can offer you no information about
this drug at all nor any other drugs for that matter. I was on ADT3 for two years and just recently saw a rise in PSA. I plan on monitoring it for another year to see what happens.
I would like to say I am sorry for you losing your wife I know that has to be difficult. I can;t imagine what your kids are going through watching their mom suffer and now you having cancer.
I would like to ask you a couple questions if you don't mind. How is your physical health aside from PCa? Do you exercise, have a healthy diet, etc? When I went to The Cancer Treatment Center of America three years ago one of the first things they did was treat me personally along with the cancer. I am a firm believer that to fight this battle with everything you have you first have to be emotionally, physically, and spiritually healthy. Just my thoughts Steve and I am sure others may not share that.
Email me sometime and we can chat away from the forum.
hang in there
peace to you
