Hi to all my healing friends and happy holidays. I need a little help sorting this out in my brain and regaining HOPE in my heart. My dad has a had a cough for a while, but it as of late it has gotten much worse. In my gut, before chemo even started I feared pca already spread but was not yet visible, but no CT scan showed this. mri and pet scans never run. Wednesday ,we just did round 3 of docetaxel,and the doctor moved up the scan from 5 weeks to Monday because of the cough. First , please pray it is clear. Second, if it is not can anyone tell me how the treatment changes course? Has anyone anyone on here who had it spread to lungs and can you share your experience, please. Has anyone been successfully treated and what clinical trials if any would be appropriate? My profile has his treatment recorded . He is still on lupron,exgeva , and docetaxel every 3 weeks. Psa start 75 with 2 rounds of chemo it is 6.99. It's also taking a long time to drop by comparison to stories I've heard on here. 6 months and the Psa is still not where it needs to be. If indeed it spread to lungs, what is next, what changes ? thank you everyone for your continued support. I'm forever grateful, and right now I'm very scared and need input to regain the most important thing of all..Hope.
