My PSA is still very low at 0.11 with about a 12 mo. doubling time. If the doubling time remains constant my PSA would reach 100 about the time I turn 85. If I start intermittent ADT now, I might add a few years. If I could find an oncologist to administer ADT3, I might even add more years. My question is, why bother? I am in good health but my fear of getting stuck in a nursing home far out weighs my fear of death. I know in an earlier post, Ralphv mentioned that ADT could have a significant beneficial impact on end of life comorbidities but I don't understand how that works.
My biggest problem now is finding an oncologist that treats PCa. I live in Pensacola, Fl and haven't located anyone between New Orleans, Birmingham or Atlanta. My preference would be someone like Scholz or Lam but i'm really not interested in that much travel.
