Finished 39 radiotherapy for tumor growing out of my prostate 5 weeks ago. Been on Degarelix for 3 years and the tumor grew during the year I was supplementing with Cosudex. Last visit to oncologist 2 weeks ago discussed docetaxel plus predisnone. Sent me for scans and further blood tests. Had the bone scan Tuesday and blood tests Wednesday. Had CT scan this afternoon. Due to scheduling I met with the Radiation Oncologist before the CT scan (meeting Oncologist next Tuesday). Results of bone scan and blood tests better than good. Most metasticizes gone! PSA down from 1.9 to 1.3. All other blood tests fine. So, the only unknown variable is the CT scan.
If that is okay, I am wondering why I would need to go on chemo? Wouldn't watchful waiting be the best option? Of course the Degarelix will continue each month.
Would appreciate some input to assist me in my deliberations.
