Mid November 2022 - Annual visit with Urologist. PSA .03
Just about 7 years from diagnosis
I remain a good example of successful radiation treatment, along with an early diagnosis.
My younger brother died in 2012 at 57 from PCa. When he was diagnosed in 2007, I started 6 month PSA tests along with visits to my urologist. In 2015, My PSA doubled in 6 months then dropped on a retest, then doubled again 6 months later Had the MRI and Biopsy quickly and scored a G8.
A week later, (After the CT scan and bone scan), I had my first Lupron shot. 2 weeks later, After visits with the Rad Oncologist and a surgeon, I decided on the treatment.
Having watched my brother suffer, I was not waiting around.
