Re: recently diagnosed and scared

There are others more knowledgeable than me in the area of HT, but everything I read is that you want to bring out all the big guns as soon as possible, that means ADT3. The idea is to attack the PC cells while the tumor burden is still low and kill as many as your can before they figure out a way to mutate. You are looking for a complete hormone blockage and a psa of .05. Your best bet is to get a medical oncologist specializing in PC as most doctors don't know how to properly monitor patients on HT. Many patients have been on HT for years with good results.
