...I will be doing the EBRT sim next week. Then my wife and I are going on a long planned cruise (we celebrated our 30th the day I got the bone scan results back) the week of Thanksgiving. Once back, I will immediately begin both the ADT and EBRT. It's good to have a plan. It does make me feel better. I just wish there was more certainty around it.
Sorry you had to join us here Randy. With your G10 and mets I'm kind of surprised they haven't started you on ADT already, plus they usually like you on it for a while before starting RT.
Starting the ADT now shouldn't interfere with your cruise plans, with the exception of the usual ADT side effects, hot flashes, etc., and if they use Lupron or similar LHRH agonist agent it takes about
a month to fully take affect anyway. (if they use Firmagon/Degarelix, it will take affect almost immediately)
