I am 83 years old and have stopped hormone treatment because of the side effects. My PSA is now 34.6 from 15.2 one year ago. I have no pain but urinatae 4 or imes a night. Anybody have any idea how high the PSA can bo before it goes into other body organs????? Thanks for any reply.

Thanks for your reply Dutch and the other one The only tests I've had were 5 years ago when first diagnosed...gleason score then was 7. They said at that time that I had possibly 8 years left which gives me 3 to go....not bad!
Because of previous operations the only recommendation was hormone treatment. I'm back on Casodex 50mg daily to see what happens in 6 weeks per my oncologist who thinks that's what I should do. Thanks again

Hey, this is all new to me. I'm 83 and diagnosed at 78 with Gleason score of 7. No operations or anything invasive only 3 injections of Zoladex which I stopped years ago. My PSA is now 36 and keeps going up. I've no idea what that means, and am not sure my oncologist knows. I just wonder how high it will go before something happens.....

Hello out there. I'm 83 and diagnosed at 78 with Gleason Score of 7.7 I've had NO operations but took 3 Zoladex injections and PSA went down to 0.8. stopped that (side effects I didn't like). now 5 years later my PSA is 34.6 and keeps going up. I'm wondering how high it can go until you konk out ???? My oncologist wants me to take Casodex which I might do just for the hell of it, but I'm content to just wait and see what happens. I figure the heart will give out before the cancer....
