Hi gents,could do with some of advice ,opinions ect, here.Went for 3 month review with urologist and my psa was down again from 3 to 2.5 but after 10 months now on adt and after 6 infusions of zometa im experiencing some minor back ache in lower spine and pelvis .The urologist said he would like to start me on chemo Early ?????? and i was so confused??? I am set for a spinal scan to see whats going on but im aware that i have mets in my spine already.Whilst ive been training of late ive been getting weak in the legs with some numbness.The docs told me to take it easier but training is my life and mentally it keeps me going.I have asked the doc about
strontium 98 as a treatment and he is considering this.Will chemo do me any good at this point ??? will strontium keep the boney mets under control ???Ive alwys been scared of the day that chemo was gona be mentioned as i am completely fit looking and generally still energetic so i dont want to punish my body with the poison !!!
