A question (slightly amended for privacy) from a message board.
I am so happy to report that my husband’s bone scan, x-ray and cat scan all came back negative and the doctor feels the cancer is contained to him prostate. I understand it could actually be a bit outside which won’t show up on any of these tests, but still this is great news for us. Have been sitting on pins and needles til these results were it.
He will start treatment in Georgia the end of this month, likely hormone therapy and radiation.
I’ve read some bad side effects from hormone therapy, anyone do the radiation without it?
Gleason 9 (5+4) psa 1.54 T2c
Good question but is it best asked of other patients on a prostate cancer message board or of this person’s doctor who recommended this form of therapy? Use all the arrows in your quiver my friend.
Here’s a google I did on this question and I got several good articles, not the least of which from the PCF’s blog that addressed the very subject. Imagine that!
