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.
Just a layman's opinion, but I would say Finasteride isn't cutting it. I had similar experience way back. It seems to me that ADT, Lupron or Zoladex, is inevitable and maybe something stronger after that, depending how things go. You know the rule - there are no rules with PCa. You can only take the best advice your oncologist has to offer, use your best judgement and do what you think to be right. Have no regrets. Don't look back. Work out how best to survive. Most of us on this site are survivors. That is what the future holds.
I wish you luck with your further treatment. You have lots of options ahead and more will emerge as the years roll by. Enjoy them!
