I have my PSA and Testosterone levels checked every 3 months. That's almost standard for patients on HT. Prostate cancer comes in many different flavors..For some, HT works well and long. For others, it does not work as well...What is working well for me is CAB, Combined Androgen Blockade. You take a drug like Lupron and combine it with Casodex and the two work in concert. Your bones need testosterone too to remain healthy..Most HT patients also must take high doses of calcium and vitamin D to counteract that side-effect...I'm doing 1800mg a day calcium..
