I have been absent a while- but watching the forum.
I had surgery in april 09, SRT in May/June of 2010 and now my PSA is on the rise again - went from 1.3 to 2.9 in slightly less than 3 months. I decided to move from the Urologist to a Medical Oncologist at the Cancer Center of Maine in Brewer, Maine - and I am happy with my new Doctor - She had me do a CT scan and Bone scan over the lst few weeks - no evidence of mets - except a worrisome spot in my right hip - which I had x-rayed again yesterday. My Doctor thinks I should start HT next week - I am meeting with her on Tuesday. She does Casodex and Lupron - I plan to ask for Avodart as well. So another chapter begins.....
Anyone on HT also taking levothyroxine. If so does the Lupron affect the dosgae of Levothyroxine??
