RT and hormone

Posted 12 Dec 2014 at 13:10

been taking the bicultimide for  about 4 months now

I also had 15 treatments of RT out of 37 in Oct. had to stop making me unwell

blood test after 2 weeks of having RT psa was 1.6 and had been on hormone for 3 months all up

is that normal - or has the RT helped a bit - psa beginning of Oct was 34

Sorry that you had to stop the R/T.

Have you asked about alternatives such as HIFU ? I don't know if appropriate to your case but worth asking for alternatives.

That's very early for a PSA test but yes, it is dropping and ideally will drop further.

been on the hormone therapy now for 17 weeks

but I think I will have to come off it, now started to

give hot burning pains in the boobs particulary at night

and cant get back to sleep and going for a pee several times

at least my psa shot right down from 34 to 1.6 and that was a month ago

going for another psa 22nd dec and seeing oncologist 5th jan
