Forecaddie, good luck on your treatment, we are all pulling for ya man.
Garyi .. i agree about
Varian being great.. i was on the table no more than 10 mins each session...
So as you all know my RO suggested we "consider" 6 month HT with SRT for my treatment at the onset of my plan. .. this is before treatment. Which I agreed to and have since completed.. then at the end of my treatment he suggested chemo as a consideration and suggested 1 addition year of HT... ive thought about
it, and I think TA would agree with me here... enough is enough for now.. ive gained 20lbs + .. and im tired from the 6 month of Lupron, im not going to endure any more treatments.. instead im going to wait a few month to let the lupron clear and start ultrasensitive PSA tests again.
BTW.. i finally told my parents... when my dad (whose a PHD in particle physics learned how much radiation i got, he initially got literally sick to his stomach... but then then i guess he said it was ok.. guess its different for ionized radoation vs what he was thinking.... i dunno.. but it did freak me out a little.
In terms of how im doing... tired, no bleeding, feel fat... and worried about
my first PSA test... i have a 14 month baby girl... and im constantly thinking about
wanting to be with her ... and stay living .. ;)
Anyway.. hope you all are doing ok...
Ps: sorry for the typos.. im travelling for business, topping from a cell phone
