Hang in there and do not be afraid to look at any and every posssible drug or choices(over time) you actually may be able to do, some docs may need to get fired if they aren't totally in your corner for choices. Myself dealing with year 9 soon and so far, really exceeded my expectations as to being around and living with healthiness at this time. My stats are below and included total urinary blockage from PCa, so it was not a mild or average case of PCa. I did hit it hard up front after knowing just how blanking serious this scenario is. Others have exceeded some docs expectations or stupid predictions, which is great to see. I was 51 or so at diagnosis, but feel for you being even younger and dealing with this, focus on the here and now part of living. Hope you have some support folks in your corner, too. I think you meant you were getting Zoladex 3 times per year?
