I have the full confidence in the NHS team treating me. My treatment plan of 2 weeks Bicalutamide, Triptorelin IM injection, 2 more weeks Bicalutamide, then review at 8 weeks to check progress was what I agreed to. Then depending on results, External beam RT after 3 months Triptorelin.
i will know on the 21st June when my RT will start. Lyn tells me she has never known anyone who hasn’t gone on to RT. Then after 6 weeks RT I guess another review.
To be completely honest, Prostatectomy of any sort was not something I would have gone for.
Gleason score of 4:5 is high, but after 5 various scans my cancer is confined to the prostate and I have no Metastasis at all. So curative treatment was decided by an MDT to be best for me. I asked and was told the team comprised a surgeon as well as a Urologist and specialist nurses, so I trust their decision on my care. But on reading countless studies and case histories online I am satisfied and that’s the main thing.
thanks for the interest in my case
