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.
I have a friend who was diagnosed with a PSA in the thousands. He was given three years tops. More than eleven years later his PSA is spiking as hormone treatment no longer works for him. Hopeful of another couple of years. He did intermittent hormone therapy so that it took longer for his body to become immune to each type of hormone. Hopefully this post will encourage similarly affected high PSA patients to never lose hope and to maintain a positive attitude on the journey. My PSA was relatively low so I had my prostate removed. My friend didn't have that option.
