Mumbo - yes definitely, and in fact I hope that is what's happening here, because I believe the plan they have him on would be with a cure in mind (rather than ongoing management of a chronic condition). So I'm hoping for that
I did suggest to him that he ask about
the option of hormone therapy long term (or perhaps intermittent). I figured it wouldn't hurt for him to ask about
that (and some research there won't delay anything for him, as he needs to be on the lupron for 2-3 months before he'd be able to begin SRT anyway). If nothing else, it'll just solidify his comfort with the plan he's chosen.
I'm confused as to why his local docs allowed him to let his PSA get so high (it's gone from 56 to 80 in the past 9 months) before treating it. But he might've been pushing back on treatment at that time, I'm not sure.
