Roy M lives in Pennsylvania, USA. He was 55 when he was diagnosed in August, 2003. His initial PSA was 6.82 ng/ml, his Gleason Score was 6, and he was staged T2c. His choice of treatment was Brachytherapy (Seed Implant). Here is his story.

Brachytherapy failed after 7 years. I then went on IHT. Great results for 4 years. Not sure of what was next and elected to see Dr. Charles Myers in Earlysville, VA.

Nov. 2015 - Dr. Myers put me on Lupron, Avodart, Casodex. PSA was 0.454 in June 2016 from a low of 0.328. May 25 started on Xtandi as the Lupron was failing. Also taken off the Casodex. Feel great and have more energy than I have had in years. No side effects from all the meds that I am taking. Very positive outlook on life. Enjoy semi retirement.

UPDATED

July 2016

Just received labs and my PSA dropped from 0.454 last month to 0.091. I feel well on my way to remission. Now I have no idea how long remission will last but doing good so far. Dr Myers has me on Avodart, Lupron and Xtandi. Quite a lot of medication but feeling very good. Spent Wednesday at an amusement park with 10 members of my family. They were amazed I even wanted to go. I just made reservation to go to PCRI in Sept at the LAX airport. Hope to meet some of you there.
