Controversial issue. If his PSA is staying down and he is symptomatic as you say then he could receive testosterone replacement at a low dose. As long as the PSA is monitered. Testosterone wont make the cancer come back, if it is there, it is there. But it may start growing faster. If this is the case he should stop and then be put on Megace for the hot flashes.

Dr. Charles "Snuffy" Myers (http://prostateforum.com ) just published a book on prostate cancer focused on hormone therapy and diet. He also consults privately with prostate cancer patients. I strongly suggest that you contact Dr. Myers and ask if he can help you. You'll have to spend a few bucks but I wouldn't depend on anyone other than a couple of doctors to help on this topic. Dr. Myers is one of those on whom I would depend.
