My 83 yo Dad has Prostate Cancer which has metastasized into his lymph node and bones. As of right now the cancer is not in any organs. He decided not to have any treatments prior to his terminal diagnosis and that hasn't changed. (His personal choice of quality of the life he had left). He will be seeing an oncologist soon just for some more answers about what to expect. My question is, would a hormone therapy help him in any way such as to ease symptoms and/or pain?
We do plan to ask the doctor anyway but would love some personal or family experience. Thanks for your time.View Thread
Has anyone experienced difficulty continuing to work while undergoing radiation therapy (EBRT)? I understand about 45 treatments are required, one a day, 5 days a week, for about 9 weeks. This is a long time to be off work.View Thread
I recently had a physical where they took blood samples. My PSA level was 44.4. The doctor thought there was a mistake so another test was performed and the PSA level was 44.8. Now the doctor would like to do a biopsy. Is this normal?View Thread
I am 59, I had the Da Vinci robotic surgery 3 months ago. The doctor said to me after that he was only able to spare 30% of my nerves and that he is concern about my erection ability. I have been taking cialis daily and i feel my penis fuller when i masterbate.
The doctor advised to try muse or injection to the penis to see which works. I have tried the muse - I get fuller but not strong enough for penetration. Does anyone have any ideas for me?View Thread
