I am two years out from my prostatectomy, I am worried, scared depressed
and sad... I knew I would have a rough road, because my cancer was not contained
in the prostate, they found it in seminal vessicals and lymph nodes
it has been four months since my last Lupron shot and my testosterone is 3
and my PSA is 5, i am going to wait one month and re-test to see what my PSA
i am not interested in radiation, because it will damage what ever health i have left
and i don't believe i am a candidate for a cure... i feel screwed... and stuck
i was thinking of taking one Lupron shot a year just to slow it down .
i want to know what would happen if i stop Lupron and let cancer take it's course
i want to know how long i have to live either on Lupron or off...
i know no one knows and no one can help me, it is in Gods hands.
thanks for listening
