It has been some time since I last visited this site, hope everyone is keeping well.
I just wondered if anyone could offer any help or advice with regard to my husband's situation.
After somewhat of a honeymoon period (if there is such a thing!) of reasonable response to zolodex, My husband's psa has bounced from 10 to 23 to 34 in three months.
We knew chemo was going to be the next step and he is due to get first treatment early in the new year.
His consultant seemed to be of the opinion that the chemo would give him a further 3 - 4 months symptom free (he has no symptoms atm, no pain, weight loss or anything) so the reason for starting the treatment now is that he is in good health and will be better equipped to withstand the treatment.
We were fairly gutted to hear that the chemo had such a short effect. Is there anything after chemo? The consultant seemed to think not (other than Aberitone or whatever it's called which probably wont be licensed til later next year)
The guy doesn't like us asking questions. Keeps saying 'one step at a time' easy when it's someone else's life your talking about.
Does anyone know what we might expect over the next 12 months? I know this is an impossible question, unanswerable other than in the most general of terms, but we are soo in the dark it's driving us mad!
Sorry to put this one out there but I'm sure some will have an idea what the possibilities are
Thanks in advance
