Hello everyone

I have not posted for a while but do lerk pretty much everyday. Our plate seem to be getting bigger and bigger .After talking to 9 different Dr they have diagnosed my Husband with Parkinson Disease .His PSA came in today with another rise from 1.50 to 2.50 that is just shy of 3 Month his testosterone stayed pretty much the same .Will be talking to his Dr (RO) next week. Not sure if anything should or will be done at this point. I would like to see another Bone Scan done if nothing else.

Thanks for reading .

Still watching for Mary ( Willie) has anyone talk to her .Hope all is well.

Hello Deidre,
That was a tough break being diagnosed with Parkinsons as well as watching the PSA climb a little again. It is probably unlikely that a bone scan would show very much -------- the PSA is more than likely a little low for visible any mets to be seen. As to mary she posted a couple of times in the last two weeks. She was pleased that Willie was coping with the chemo, exercising a bit and was eating more.

Nice to see you post again. Sorry about the PSA rise. I agree with Billy, that the bone scan probably wouldn't show up anything of value, but it may be able to be compared to a previous one. Good luck to the two of you.

Hi Deidre, no fun having any sort of PSA rise, even a small one. And, very sorry to hear about the Parkinson Disease. I've got several friends who've "signed up" for Parkinson's in the past couple of years. I understand there are some wonderful treatments available now. I trust one will work magic for him.

Thanks for giving us the update. Please keep us posted. I'll be watching to hear from you.

I too have been wondering how Willie's meeting with the doctor went. I hope Mary has a chance to post soon.
