Original diagnosis was bad. Initial response from my urologist was I had a 30% chance of living 3 years and wasn't suitable for surgery or RT. He was 'let go' by hospital that week!
The oncologist was much more positive and had already scheduled surgery and explained I would be put on hormones immediately afterwards. She suggested rt after the surgeon couldn't get clear margins and the found cells in my lymph nodes.
Pre surgery PSA was 15. After was still 4.5. After 3 months hormones it was 0.01. It has been that for 17 months.
I am eating so much healthier and lost 2 stone since surgery. Partly dairy free but also cutting out carbs. Not part of my cancer diet but helped me get from obese to overweight. The hormone made me put on weight. I also walk about 10 miles a week to help retain the leg muscle tone, also lost from the hormones.
