I did not post for a while, but wanted to share a good news today.

After a neo-adjuvant chemo, RRP, SRT, and a year of HT I am now again "undetectable". It's been 8 months since my last Lupron shot and my T level is at over 200.

Given the above, I am re-applying to Zero-club.

This couldn't come at a better time: my doughter in law is due to deliver my second grandchild today. The news gives me hope that I can be part of my grand kids life.

I believe God is looking after me.
Father died from poorly differentiated PCa @ 78 - normal PSA and DRE
5 biopsies over 4 years negative while PSA going from 3.8 to 28
Dx Nov 2007, age 46, PSA 29, Gleason 4+4=8
Decided to participate in clinical trial at Duke - 6 rounds of chemo (Taxotere + Avastin)
PSA prior to treatment 1/8/2008 is 33.90, bounced on 1/31/2008 to 38.20, and down at the end of the treatment (4/24/2008) to 20.60
RRP at Duke (Dr. Moul) on 6/16/2008, Gleason downgraded 4+3=7, T3a N0MX, focal extraprostatic extension, two small positive margins

ADT (ongoing, duration TBD): Lupron started 6/22/2009
Salvage IMRT to prostate bed and pelvis - 72gy over 40 treatments finished 10/21/2009
PSA 6/25/2009 0.1, T=516, 7/23/2009 <0.05, T<10, 10/21/2009 <0.05, T<10

Great news Geebra,

Nothing like another grandbaby........and low PSA.

We just found out we have two more grandbabies on the way, one in August and one in October. They are worth all the hot flashes of ADT....another shot of Eligard next week and I am wondering how I am going to do summer in Atlanta.

Keep up the great results.
PSA 59 on 8-26-2010 age 60. Biopsy 9-8-2010 12/12 positive, 20-80% involved, PNI in 3 cores, G 3+3,3+4,and 4+3=G7, T2b.
Eligard shot and daily Jalyn started on 10-7-2010.
IMRT to prostate and lymph nodes 25 fractions started on 11-8-2010, HDR Brachytherapy 12-6 and 13-2010.
PSA <.1 and T 23 on 2-3-2011.

Thank you all! Just wanted to report that baby girl, Hannah Naomi, has arrived a few days late. She is 7.5 pounds an 20.5 inches and is adorable. Everyone is elated, except her brother Aaron, who has discovered that he is no longer the center of the universe at a young age of 19 months.
