Ralp just before me. PSA 20, G8 with positive node. ART w/ ADT.
Went off ADT 6 months ago. PSA comes back. Doubling time 3 mos. Now at JH.
One spot on thigh bone. One spot abdominal node. One spot node in neck. (Axium). Had first radiation to thigh bone and mapped the 2 nodes today. Gets shot of radium 223 tomorrow. Will be up there 5 weeks. Clinical trial.
Heartbreaking to me for my sister. They assumed he was cured.
It’s too close to home.
Very sorry about
the news. I don’t know who they were, but that pathology was too high risk to be making a cure assumption so early.
