Bruce F lives in Connecticut, USA. He was 58 when he was diagnosed in December, 2015. His initial PSA was 6.00 ng/ml, his Gleason Score was 9, and he was staged T3a. His choice of treatment was Surgery (Robotic Laparoscopic Prostatectomy). Here is his story.
THERE WAS NO RESPONSE TO AN UPDATE REMINDER IN 2017 SO THERE IS NO UPDATE.
I was diagnosed during a routine colonoscopy, although I am checked every year. I was told I have a very aggressive form of cancer. I had the Prostatectomy in February and am doing very well. They want me to start Radiation soon, and want me to have a "Lupron" shot first, to aid with the radiation. My question is this: Can anyone share their experience with me on "Lupron". For some reason I am afraid of taking this hormone. [There are a significant number of Survivor Stories that mention Lupron -- please use the Site Search Engine on the Resources page to search for those stories.]
