Hi I've been told dad's on HT for life. Even if it's not effective with keeping psa in check it acts as a painkiller and helps with bone pain.

It depends littleredcar - sometimes the pain gets a bit worse to begin with but then improves as the tumours shrink. Sometimes it is the tumours shrinking that causes the pain!
