I'm 72 and had a radical prostatectomy 7 years ago Feb and 4 months later my PSA started back up. I then had 34 radiation treatments. My PSA stayed around 0 for 5 years or so and then started up, doubling and then increased 4 fold or more. It was 4.8 when I had my first 90 day Lupron shot. My PSA went down to .8 and I had a second 90 shot and it stayed at .8. My urologist wants me to have another Lupron shot. Because of bad side effects I have refused a third shot, but agreed to try Casadex for 90 days and then have mys PSA checked again. I'm interested in communicating with anyone who has had a similar experience or anyone who has advice.
