Sorry that I missed your post and questions.
I was Dx in Jan 2005: PSA 26.5 and Gleason 7 (4+3). Was started on ADT immediately - Zoladex and Casodex and continued on them until Jan 2007. In July and August 2005 I underwent 5 weeks of external beam radiation and then HDR brachytherapy. My PSA, from shortly after I started ADT until now has been undetectable. It was only a fluke that a CT scan of my pelvis caught the bottom of my left lung and and one of the larger nodules living there.
The diet is going OK. Wife is pretty serious about
this. I'm essentially eating only fruit and fresh, steamed vegetables. I've eaten so many blueberries over the last few weeks that I'm starting to look like one. I ran into (not literally) a young lady in my office parking lot who walks with a cane and has MS. We chatted for a while, comparing our diseases and she told me about
a great website: christinacooks.com
My oncologist here in NJ, thankfully, agreed with the one in Houston, that starting chemo now wouldn't give me any advantage, so I'm set up for CT and bone scans every 6 weeks until the stuff starts hitting the fan and will then start chemo. She did, however, start Lupron, which, supposedly is the same as Zoladex, but which is given in the butt every 4 months vs. Zoladex in the stomach every 3 months (so how can they be the same thing?).
Thanks for caring - it's greatly appreciated.
