July 9 - meeting with oncologist. He is pleased with the low numbers - <0.008 and say the prostate cancer is undetectable so I don't need another hormone shot until the numbers rise up again PSA 8-10.
I am not one to rely on only one reading so, for peace of mind - and wanting to starve the cancer - I requested a second hormone shot ( I had originally been told I would be getting 3 shots over a period of 3 months each- 9 months in total).
I have not experienced any side effects - so he is letting me do this for my benefit. I will give him another PSA test result in 3 months ( actually had already planned one a month for the next 6 months) and see him in 6 months - in 2019 !!
All in all I am pleased. I am going with the flow. Glad with the numbers - just want to keep them low.
After the meeting in January 2019, will just let it ride if numbers are still low and see where the numbers go every 3-6 months as per his plan.
You have to be your own advocate to ensure your best treatment for your health and peace of mind.
Best wishes to one and all,
