Kenabler S lives in New Hampshire, USA. He was 53 when he was diagnosed in February, 1996. His initial PSA was 6.30 ng/ml, his Gleason Score was 7, and he was staged Unknown. His choice of treatment was Surgery (Retropubic Prostatectomy). Here is his story.

I am "celebrating" my 20th year of fighting PCa, diagnosed when I was 53 in 1996. In addition to a radical prostatectomy weeks after diagnosis, I have endured five three-month courses of Lupron and Zoladex hormonal "therapy". I am in my second month of a six-month Eligard depot, and have two or three significant hot flashes per hour, 24/7. As of this writing, I have received four of 16 radiation treatments, and chemotherapy is on the menu for dessert.
