My husband was G9 T3B N0 M0 he has HDBrachytherapy then 5 weeks of RT, he will be on Prostrap until June 2018 his PSA has been undetectable for the last year <0.1
He is happy with his decision, regaining his strength and managing the side effects of the HT reasonably well. He has no libido, gets the occasional hot flush, and the odd day of tiredness.
Our lives have changed, physically emotionally and socially. We are the same people readjusting our lives to make the best of something we did not want, this bl##dy disease is something none of us want.
What we do want is quality of life, enjoyment, health and happiness, we will not let this disease get the better of us. We hope he does not have to have further treatments, and he’s been given the old stats of a 50/50 chance of remission. I’m no medic or mathematician but even I can work that one out. A medical friend has told us that usually oncologists are a conservative bunch, so I’m hoping she is right.
He is older than you at 67, fairly fit, still running a small holding and playing as a muzo every day ( at home) so it’s not all doom and gloom, though we both fall into the emotional black hole sometimes, but make sure we drag ourselves out, cos it’s not a good place to be.
Research ask questions and use this site, it has been a place of great support for me.
