I thought I would update this thread since I have latest PSA result plus I saw my oncologist this morning.


PSA measured 30/11/19 is <0.1, happy days. The oncologist today was very happy with things as they stand.


He has cautioned that I am not cured but because the PSA is <0.1, 9 months after HT ended he has moved me to 6 monthly reviews by letter rather than face to face appointments. He has ensured I still have the telephone number for the specialist nurses and should get in touch if anything changes.


I have been here before so am naturally cautious too but also very happy that PSA is still undetectable.


I feel so much better off the HT so hope that I stay off it long term.


Keep fighting.

Missed this. Nice one, Centurion!

Thanks CC,CJ, Lyn and PP. The relief on my wife’s face is fantastic to see.


We we’re chatting on our way to the cancer centre about it being almost 5 years since diagnosis. 4 of those 5 years have been either in treatment or attending appointments with oncology or urology.


I am by nature cautious so won’t be assuming the fight is over but it’s good today.


PP, I have everything crossed for your next test.


CJ, I am thinking about you as treatment will be resuming reasonably soon I guess. 

Ian

Great news on the PSA, sometimes treatment and issues seem never ending.  Hope you get some respite from more treatment.


Thanks Chris

I was going to ask which wall Lyn was referring to?


Hadrian’s, the Antonine one or an imaginary one πŸ™‚
