We are at a point of having to make a major decision on which disease my guy choose to die from,not to say he wont die from something else beside the PC Cancer or PSP diease.My husband PSA is 299 and do believe his prostate cancer has spread to his spine and ribs after a full line of treatment to slow it,we had decided in 2015 to not do any further testing for the PC but now faced with the pain in his lower right ribs and shoulder and upper spine .It could take a long time to spread and that is the million dollar question on how long it would take.He is in his 10 plus years of psp (Proggersive supranuclear palsy) and his eating abilities are diminishing and has chosen not to have a peg as well as a lot of other not so nice problems that go along with psp,this disease run along the same line as ALS and it average life expectancy 5 to 7 years to which he has beat that by 3 years
I truly believe he knows exactly what is going on and trust that he is able to make the final decision
After much talking on my part and his thumbs up or down as he is not able to speak any more, we have decided to do pain management only for the pc cancer.Im thinking it maybe the right way to go but if any of you knowledgeable people on here have any thoughts about it would appreciate it..We are in the waiting game again and would like to have a decision for the doctor when he calls.
