Spoke with my radiologist today and he agreed that new data shows that 18 months is probably enough. Will talk with my oncologist asap and see what he says. This is like "You bet your life" vs Sex!
Am I missing something? What’s the rush to talk asap about
ending 6 months early 9 months from now? Your undetectable PSA on ADT is the expected result, nice to see but not meaningful. Also T recovery isn’t a light switch on/off/on after ADT, read some T recovery length of time posts here. I’m on my third and final Lupron shot 16 months total, I have hated it, no mirrors allowed ;). My thinking was I had one initial shot at a cure, best big punch for me up front, no regrets.
Shall we play a game?
