I've read some of those studies which gave me a sense of relief that coming off HT at 18 months was a sensible strategy and was reconciled to that. Nevertheless, there always is a sense of 'what if'. Part of me wants to stop the HT in August so we can see whether my exceptionally low PSA is down to the SRT or not. In other words, is HT artificially suppressing my PSA and will it start to rise some time after stopping?
In any case, my oncologist wasn't even going to combine HT with my SRT at first. I had to fight a bit for that. I'm glad I did, but I must admit to hating bicalutimide, and that's supposedly the easy HT!
