Thank you, Jamish..

By way of sharing, I JUST got a call from the UROLOGISTS' office they re-did my PSA test on Thursday last and called today to tell me its back down well below 0. now...it had been before, then rocketed back up to 12.5 so they did radiation to shrink the tumor, gave me a rash and esophogeal problems for a while, then a LUPRON shot in the butt which I will repeat in DEC and started me on Xtandi, a new drug to replace the Casodex.  i don't wish to be crude but that Casodex medication made my nipples and breasts very sore / tender... It all is a hormone process of 'blocking' the hormones that feed prostate cancer...I am not savvy enough to know if it mean it's blocks or KILLS my testosterone but if it's the latter, I am going to make one pug ugly female! :(

The words "Child" and "terminal illness" should never share the same sentence! Those who care-do, others question!

Happy to hear the good news about the PSA test results.  Sorry about the side effects, but as you know, there is always something.  Continued prayers for your well being.  Stay strong, you are not alone in this.  May God work through your doctors hands.

Good news on the PSA reading Doc. Mine has gone back up. Oncologist is doing all kinds of test trying to find out why it's going up.  Guess I'll know more after November 9 th unless he orders more test.

The one doc, who did the radiation, said that they often yo-yo after that treatment for a while...

Mine went down then back up , They opted to wait a bit and WATCH... Been a wild ride here, too!  Somewhere in that mess, they re-did bone and PET scan and found the "escaped" cells in spine, had grown...after that, the Urologist stuck me on Proscar and Casodex, which made my boobs sore...THEN it shot back up and the URO doc switched to Lupron shots and Xtandi... plus more radiation... and now it's down again... Will it stay down? Dunno...

Rider, I hope they can nail yours down a bit...

They also found the mass after the 12.5 in the spine
