Well, I don't know if I really want to write this. Today's PSA is 100,
doubled in two weeks from 52. The increase from the "12" two months ago
is due to the metastasis to a lymph node in my chest. They will remove
the lymph node next week, and they expect the PSA to drop dramatically.
Then I start on a new Phase III trial, taking adriamycin, taxol, and
thalidomide. They have to remove the lymph node because otherwise it
will squeeze off and close my bronchial tube, collapse a lung, and give
me pneumonia.
Wish me luck! ;-}

boy dan - that's not the news you want to hear, that's for sure. but if
they have told you is true and removing the lymph will drop the psa
quite a bit, then, that's very good news. have you noticed any
improvement at all being in the clinical trial?
