It’s been 8 years since I was diagnosed with Gleason 9 PC and like 7 years since bone mets were found. Even still, I’ve been able to go on Intermittant Hormone Therapy (IHT). My PSA is currently undetectable with normal testosterone.
Thank you all for your support and information over the years. HW is and always has been a great discovery for me.
Here’s to the next 8 years.
Fantastic news! Good on 'Ya from a fellow G9er!
That's great news! Keep it up. It's good to share this to provide hope, especially for those newly diagnosed with high risk cases.
There's a lot of scary stuff out there about these high Gleason score cases, but there is definitely hope!
You speak truth, Red man!(er, wing!)
