The Results Are In….

I went to the local cancer center on Tuesday (the 22nd of this month) to get the results of my latest blood tests (done almost 2 weeks ago)....  Not good news… my PSA levels have gone up to 12.4 from 0.4 over the past 6 months… They climbed a LOT faster than we had hoped...but I’m really not surprised after the test 6 months ago…

In any case, I ended up spending 2 hours at the cancer center...the first hour waiting to see the doctor and get the results...then had to wait for my prescription of Casodex to be filled and for my injection of Eligard…

The injection went pretty much as usual.... a simple painless needle poke...then the burning feeling as the Eligard is injected… actually, the burning wasn’t too bad this time...at least not until the band-aid was put on… Just touching the site caused an extreme burning sensation… Oh the joys!!  Thankfully the burning sensation quickly went away...and stayed away until I moved or touched anywhere near the injection site (which seems to happen quite frequently...lol). 

So here we go again… I was just starting to notice some relief from the side effects of HDT… Who knows though...it will probably be a few weeks before I notice too much of a change again...and I guess it really doesn’t matter...the important thing is to knock the cancer back once again!!

Until next time....
