Dad's PSA continues to drop, latest being 0.17 after stopping HDK. He is on no medication at the moment. Hope this continues forever.

Best wishes to all and thanks for your support.

I hope that the drop continues. I am glad for the news and to know that your family is at peace.
I would recommend you to research about the newer antiandrogen type MDV3100. This may be a good subtitution drug on your father's treatment. You could inquire about the possibility on his enrolment in a clinical trial with the newer drugs, before starting chemo.
