      I would go immediately to a National Cancer Institute designated comprehensive cancer center. They are state of the art and employ the best and brightest, perform research (clinical trials) and overall, provide you with the best possible outcome. Find the nearest center here: https://www.cancer.gov/research/nci-role/cancer-centers/find

      Eat healthy and exercise as your body allows. Drinks lots of fluids and rest when you need to.

      I survive by prayer. Few seem to believe in that nowadays, but I should have died in 2008, and then in each and every year since then. Apparently, the Lord has other plans for me.

      Agree with the others. You will not know what your best options are until you do your homework and research your options and talk to several different specialists. My brother in- law did just that when he was diagnosed with late stage prostate cancer. He chose broad spectrum radiation and celebrated his five year survival several months ago. His choice may not be the best choice for you however. You have several cancer centers in Iowa, one in DeMoines and two in or near Iowa City. Sometimes we need to travel to get the best care available, that may be a few hours by car or even out of state when necessary. Clinical trials are always a possibility .There is no downside to prayer and personally I think a positive determined attitude when battling this disease helps.

      Hello, I'm an oncology nurse. Stay on the TIP (testosterone inactivating pharmaceuticals) therapy. There are other medications like Xtandi or the vaccine Provenge. Best of luck to you.
