Great News!… at least for me…

I had my Hormone Deprivation Therapy (HDT) injection last week... as well as blood tests the week before that... Today I finally got to see the doctor after 6 months... Great News!... at least for me... My PSA levels have dropped from 0.3 to 0.2 and the doc feels comfortable giving me another break from treatment... unfortunately I just had my injection, so it will be 4-5 months until things start to change... that's okay though... it's hope that my body will start to act more 'normal' for the summer!

It's only been 15 months since I started my second round of Hormone Deprivation Therapy, but I'm extremely tired of the side effects this time... Everything seems to be magnified this round... the hot flashes are much more extreme...night sweats this time round... more joint pain... more weight gain...much more tired... but the up side is that I am still doing well and feeling pretty good when I'm not sleeping... LOL

I did an online 'cancer' research questionnaire last week... there were a lot of great questions, and they got me thinking... but that will be in a future posting... For now, I'm just going to enjoy the moment...

Until next time....
