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.

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.]

Thanks,
Bruce F
