Well, I never really left.
Since my last post:
Jan 3rd - PSA was 142 so I stopped High Dose Casodex
The Abriaterone clinical trial site in LA filled up (long story for another time)
I have been accepted to s site in Atlanta and will go there this week.
If it all works out, I'll get the medication and be home by the end of the week.
I will have to return to Atlanta every two week until we can transfer to a site
closer to home. Omaha (2.5 hours away) is supposed to
open by late Feb
and a site in Kansas City is in the works.
I also have received approval from my insurance company for Provenge but will hold off on that
for now becasue of my PSA.
