During an unexpected trip to the US, we had my husband's PSA checked. AND, PSA two months after the first lupron injection was 4. It came down from 450 (after two weeks of Casodex) and had started at 2000. We sure hope that it will go further down next month (next lupron injection), but I think it's a good start!!!!!!

Thanks to all for sharing our excitement.

Lee, Buddy, you are right, it's amazing that it's been 2 months since we first joined the club. Life goes on, and there are actually days that we don't think about the PCa. Fortunately, the side effects of the lupron are still not too bad, and we're very grateful for that.

We'll be going to the US for the next lupron injection, after which we're planning to continue the treatment in India. If anybody knows of excellent Indian PCa specialists?
