Hi there, it has been many years since my last visit. So I am hoping someone has any views. Husband diagnosed 20 years ago with advanced aggressive PC. He chose radical prostatectomy and refused any other treatment. Forward 18yrs he is diagnosed with CLL, practically overnight his Hb dropped to 4. GP visited home at 6.30pm told us husband dying and has days to live. Following day palliative care team kicked in. Mcmillan nurse suggested hubby take the steriods dexamethasone. Within days husband starts to come back to life. Weeks later he is out walking in his beloved countryside. Forward to the present day, his psa is 400, He has multiple mets, spine, ribs, hips etc. He has refused chemo but reluctantly agreed to HT. He does feel tired and has a little pain. I don't know how much time he has left as his body is coping with his PC and leukemia (he has refused treatment ).
what I want to emphasise is he has had an excellent quality of life (till now).
Changing diet, lifestyle and power walking daily plus a very positive outlook has been his therapy.
Sorry this is a bit condensed. But hope you get the picture.
