Title: Need some input
Post by: Kathy on January 03, 2019, 03:40:22 pm
My husband has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He is 61 years old and other than this he is in pretty good shape, and it hasnt spread anywhere. Psa was 25, recommended treatment plan is Hormone therapy (for 2 years) and radiation.  If anyone has went with this plan are you glad or regretful?

My father-in-law went through something similar when he was in his 70s. He is now in his mid-80s. Very happy with the results.

My uncle is facing a similar diagnosis now and it looks like he is going to pull through. The radiation is not pleasant but compared to some diagnoses....it could be a lot worse! your husband is in good shape too, which helps him remain stronger throughout treatment. hope you both are doing okay with the news.
