As you can see, I'm a newbie here. I saw your name and age under adv. PC and was intrigued, perhaps we will become friends. A bit about myself; I was diagnosed with Stage III metastatic PC 4 years ago at the age of 52. I presented with a consistent PSA of 511 and a Gleason score of 9. Obviously, not good, huh? Right from the start, the tumor/cancer has been effectively managed with occasional use of Casodex and a once every 4 month Intramuscular injection of Lupron.
I would like to hear from you about your status and treatment as you are the youngest man that I have come across that has the same severity of PC that I do. As I said, I am new here, I would also appreciate any pointers you might have that would help me navigate this site. Thanks, Q17
