Hi Vicky, It seems that your Dad has a good attitude and if he can keep from thinking about his cancer as much as possible until nearer the next PSA test in November that is great. We all have a wobble as the next PSA test comes nearer and there will be times when he can't help but think about it. Sometimes when there is a news story or something like that or just when he is down. As he already has had treatment in the past an operation to remove the prostate is challenging and rarely done. It is also not unusual to not suggest an operation for someone in their seventies although a neighbour of mine did have a radical prostatectomy at 76 around the time I was diagnosed at 73. However it does depend on the position and spread of cancer - for.
Oldtimer I too have Atrial Fibrillation for me it is persistent so once in it only a cardioversion will get me out. Thankfully each cardioversion I have had (3) has taken me out for varying lengths of time, the first for just less than a year, the second for a few months - am sure it was the gruelling physio after my total knee replacement that brought it back on and the third in Feb this year has put me back in normal sinus rhythm to date. I am down to have an ablation which should have happened in April but C19 put paid to that. thankfully I amd oing fine and still walking pretty much every day and exercising in my home made gym. I do miss going to the gym and talking with people though I am sure that does as much good as the exercise. I
I am 77 in October too. I shall raise a glass to you on my birthday oldtimer. My Mum tells me of hiding under the table with me in her arms from Hitler's bombs in Hull. One side of the street was devastated and my grans off licence was left standing on the other side. I have some super photos of me riding my tricycle through the bombsites - they were great places for boys to play in.

Hi Miktroy, Smiley has only posted once on this forum in 2018 and not sure whether you will have a reply from them. It would be better if you started a new thread with your first post so that we can answer and also fill in your profile page with your journey so far. However I will answer here to start. With a Gleason of 7(3+4) as long as the cancer has not spread your cancer like mine will likely be curable. However, you haven't given your PSA reading and as you are still waiting for your MRI and other scans nothing can be determined about future treatment until all the results are in. At your age with no spread all avenues of treatment would be open - unless you have other problems that rule them out. My PSA was 13 Gleason 7 (3+4) and no v.
Good morning Oldtimer Glad to hear things on the up for you with ref to your meds im still having issues on and off but getting better with mine however i do get fed up with when you talk to the specialists they seem to think the hormone meds shouldn't course the side effects yet when you read on line it clearly states they will.
Interesting that hospital suggested Steroids for muscle strength. Sometimes I feel that my legs are going to give out on me but am 79 so only to be expected. My Consultant is going to ring me in a couple of weeks after a blood test and expect I shall be back on Bicalutamide depending on results. Will try suggesting what he thinks of Steroids if he does put me back on them as I fear that they may finish my legs.. Probably a bit late now as I think they might be a long term medication.
Hi Joe - thank you for this. I will ring Prostate Cancer UK later to get more information. Your reply was what I was hoping to hear. I do understand that we are fortunate to be offered this drug & that it's far kinder than chemo. I just want to know that it's a good alternative to chemo & not a second best option. You have given me hope which helps enormously at the moment. Hope you have many more good years on your treatment Kath.
Hi - my husband was diagnosed with advanced metatstatic Prostate Cancer (aggressive) just as the virus hit. He has been given Bicalutamide but is about to stop this now that he is having a 3 monthly injection instead. We had a telephone appointment last week saying that he needs 6 rounds of chemo but isn't allowed it because of the virus. Does anyone know if this is the decision made by all cancer units or just some? He has been offered Enzalatumide instead but it was made very clear to us that it is normally given to patients who relapse after chemo & it isn't usually given before chemo. It was also made very clear that if he has it now, he will not be able to have it after chemo. Has anyone else been given this information? Does anyone kn.
The chap at the hospital superintending my case is making a telephone appointment to me at the middle of June and I will discuss Bicalutamide dosage with him. May depend on the blood report and previous history. Will report back what he says. Incidentally to prevent blood clots and a stroke I am also taking a blood thinner which doesn't actually thin the blood but works as it stops blood clotting. Nothing to do with Prostate problem as am prone to Atrial Fibrillation. Blood not clotting does not prevent taking a blood sample as normal nor taking my finger prick test for Diabetes sugar. level.
First you could speak to a McMillan nurse about this, it’s a why me thing, as many people on here will tell you, that crap happens. unless he’s incurable, then things can look up, what stage is he ? going through side effects can really get you down, believe me went through most of them, while he’s on chemo it’s good that’s he’s kept inside, especially with this virus. Everyone will tell you he needs to be positive, fighting this thing is half the battle. Theres plenty on line especially on this site about living with cancer, and how it affects others. The positive thing is he’s only one more session, then a few weeks of recovery, maybe a visit from the nurses will help. I have incurable Prostate cancer and battled it for nearly four years
