Met with the oncologist today. My PSA is at 2.1! Recall that before my most recent one month Lupron shot, my PSA was 17.1. Four weeks after the shot my PSA had dropped to 6.9. The four weeks of the “official” Lupron period actually weren’t that bad. Weeks 5 and 6 were a different matter. Lots of hot flashes, upset stomach, and just feeling lousy. Weeks 7 and 8 were a lot better. I’m now starting week nine and that’s when I got the 2.1 number.
Supposedly, the Lupron was only supplying a therapeutic dose for that first month. It’s obvious there was still more “juice” left, since my PSA continued to drop after the first month. We both now feel that the 1 month on and 3 months off schedule is likely workable.
