Three more months have passed and my latest PSA is <0.006. Great news.
I asked my oncologist if I was in remission. I was told that remission is one of two things - we know there are cancer cells there, they’re doing nothing at the moment so we don’t need to treat now, but we will do in the future - or, we strongly suspect there are cancer cells there but can’t detect them at the moment but do believe you’ll need future treatment.
He told me I was either in remission but there was a good chance of a ‘cure’ but made it very clear they wouldn’t consider using that word for ten years. He told me that after everything I’d been through, I was in the best possible place. I tend to agree. My urologist and oncologist have done miraculously well so far.
One other piece of news - I’ve been approved for the penile implant. Waiting list times will have changed because of Covid 19, but at least I’m approved. My local hospital doesn’t do the operation, I’ll be off to UCLH, which I’m very happy about.
