This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
Fred understand what Ted has written. Whatever treatment you might choose will have side effects that will harm your quality of life. If or when your psa starts rising you might consider doing something about it. Why treat something that might not even be there?
BTW the lowest my psa has been for the last 7 years after RP has been 0.2 and the highest 5.1.
If you are even remotely considering hormone treatment please get Dr Patrick Walsh's book 'Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer' from your local library and read his recommendation relative to when one should begin ADT. He is the father of 'nerve sparing surgery'
