July 2006 PSA 16.1
BIOPSY both sides 80-100%
bone scan ct clear
Cypertone acetate prescribed
PSA 5.6
Restaged to T4m1b
November 2006 Metastasis to pelvis
PSA 6.1
February 2007 Widespread metastasis to ribs, spine, pelvis and legs
Eligard Injection early February
       As you can see things have gone from bad to worse and the scary part is that all seemed fine untill an unrelated ct scan showed a suspicious spot in the pelvis , then followed a new bone scan that revealed widespread metastasis. Obviously the first line of hormone therapy did'nt work.Radiation therapy was cancelled as the spread made it useless. Three weeks made my husband into a new man but now he is having quite a few painful days ( well most of the time he soldiers on but some days are worse) Tiredness is also a big problem,Does anyone out there suffer from continual indigestion as he does , if so any hints how to combat it? Is there anything else I should expect as his caregiver, does this slowly get worse ? confused

I'm sorry, Kate, but I can't really respond to your medical questions other than to say there are a lot of different therapies out there that may help your husband. There are lives here that were told they didn't have a chance, and now are still going after many years. keep reading and you'll find the answers. take care, Kat
