Hi Joe, I'm not on any trial as far as I'm aware, I think the consultant would have said if I was and no I've not had radiotherapy. You read about people having all sorts of different treatments that you have never even heard of. May be it's a bit at a time treatment wise or if he doesn't need it don't give him it! Only time will tell, you just have to have faith in the consultant and hope he is doing his best for you. Cheers for now Keith.
Hi and welcome to the forum. Most of the members here are UK based, but with the range of options you have been offered I assume you aren't in the UK. It would help us to know where you are based so that the appropriate people can answer your question.
Hello my father was diagnosed May 2018. He had psa 5.6 and Gleason score of 9 which is aggressive. The cancer spread out of the prostate into one lymph node. He has been on hormone treatment (still will be on it for the next 2 years) and has had a course of chemo. He will be having a course of radiotherapy soon for 7 weeks. Its horrible, as my dad too is the healthiest man we know! But, we all stick together and he has done so well throughout treatment. We still have got a way to go but just remaining positive that so far so good We have found that carrying on with your lives as best as you can has helped for us and for Dad. They have moved home, we have moved home, we have all been so busy to not let our thoughts get carried away, and not
From SA19 if that is part of your post code you must live somewhere near me. If so where is your Dad to have his radiotherapy? Also how old is your Dad. This is absolutely the best form of treatment for your Dad at this stage. Let me know where you are and where your Dad is to have his treatment - if you have his Gleason Score then that would be great too. If you are in the area where I think you are then go along to the Maggies Centre at Singleton Hospital where you will find they have a meeting every Wednesday afternoon for sufferers of prostate cancer called "The Walnut Club" the meeting has various medical professionals come along and give information and it is a great place for the men to swap experiences and get tips from each other a.
Would be useful if you could give us your PSA and age. I was diagnosed nearly 3 years ago now with PSA 13 Gleason 7 (3+4) and staging T2M0N0. This was the staging after initial DRE, PSA and biopsy. However, after an MRI scan the oncologist (up until then only the urologist had seen the reports and actually it is better if the MRI is done before the biopsy and if you are in a part of the country where a multi parametric MRI can be done so much the better) decided that the staging was T3 as the tumour was bulging out of the back of the prostate. Therefore, treatment was definitely needed sooner rather than later. I decided on hormone therapy, followed by radiotherapy and my PSA at two years post radiotherapy is still undetectable - therefore
Hi, Well, hope they don't get in touch with you about the blood tests and you are doing OK. The wait for a new knee here is over 15 months so am going to try to get them to refer me to the veterans orthopedic centre in Oswestry - after 37 years in the Royal Air Force think I should get that but I have been refused permission to go there once. Worth trying. I am no longer in AF as had a successful cardioversion last May but am still on low dose blood thinners as have other risk factors now including age! I have heard that AF can reverse as you get older. I have a friend who has a really bad time with it and is in and out of hospital all the time so am hoping she can "grow out of it" as she can't go anywhere because of it. Couldn't get my PSA.
Hello Amandah Sorry to hear of how things are there, that's a fair amount you both have to put up with, your hubby must wonder what's the world doing to him and as his carer you must have your hands full. Its good you or you both keep busy and positive that's half a battle, owned by two dogs, I can see what happens there then, although cats usually rule the house. Your not moaning every one on here understands what you both are going through, please keep us informed you want to chat great, others will reply so your not on your own. Take care both Joe.
