My wife and I met with the oncologist today. As expected, my PSA rose a little bit to 0.61. I’m to start on Casodex now. Hopefully, it will fall back to the 0.1-0.2 level soon.
I brought up my findings about Median Survivability being 30 months and we talked about how to adjust/interpret it to given my specific situation. He indicated that number was very pessimistic given my situation. While he wouldn’t let me pin him down to a specific number, he pointed out that my age, good health, how soon we caught it, and how well I was responding to Lupron/Casodex would all extend the number. He was especially happy with how fast and how low my PSA got after starting hormone treatment.
