I am now in my fifth year with advanced prostrate cancer and 78 years. Surgery, radiation and lupron with bicalutramide have failed. Now Provenge may be offered. Guess I should be counting my blessings as I have been productive during this period. I am awaiting results from CT and bone scans to determine mets. Bone density test show three out of five measurements with high risk of breakage. My interpretation of the provenge studies show only a small extension of life. I am wondering at this point if the side effects are worth a possible short term benefit?
