Hi Im new to this site but have been on other sites for approx 18 months when I was first diagnosed with PC in Jan 16, had my prostate removed in March 16 gleeson score 4+3 PSA.7
PC came back in Oct 16 had 33 sessions of radiotherapy in Feb/March 17 my PSA doubling time was 4 weeks prior to radiotherapy.
The radiotherapy didn't do much either as it still climbed during treatment to 2.1 it did slow down a little to but has now increased again ;-( about to start hormone treatment and possibly early chemo & also metformin I guess just trying to hit it with everything.
Thought I should come onto a UK site seeing as I live here and have been for 15yrs.
At 56yrs of age I didn't expect to be told I have approx 4 to 5 yrs left.
Anyway everyone from the NHS to PCuk
have all been extremely nice as have the people I have met along the way on forums and Maggies centre.
Hope to speak to some of you along the way as well.
Take care ooroo
