Good Test Results, and Progress

The unofficial report today from my PTI case manager is that the CT scan and MRI results from last week are just as problematic as the ultrasound was: that is, not at all. As soon as the PTI doctor makes that conclusion official, he will issue a referral for the next step: the ADT (androgen deprivation therapy) injection. I’ll be able to get it in Tallahassee, saving me a trip to Jacksonville for a 5-minute procedure.

After that, while the drop in my testosterone is busy starving and weakening the prostate cancer cells, all I have to do is wait two and a half months before my next visit to Jacksonville in mid-May. That will be a two-day session of preparation for the actual treatment—which will begin at about the end of May.

When I get more exact dates, I’ll post them.
