Well, I'm off the trail and I guess I'm somewhat relieved. Just discovered that Xgeva might have helped with my bone mets but it was not allowed on the trial. Also hoping that the brain fog will disappear. Having radiation now to several spots that have caused extreme pain ( back, shoulder, etc) and after only 3 treatments (out of 14 in total) I feel some relief. Now to treat the cancer.
My oncologist suggested Zytiga before we go to Chemo. He said if Xtandi fails, Zytiga will only work 15% of the time. He thinks its worth a try as we are not really sure that the Xtandi worked much anyway. My PSA did not rise but never really dropped much and so maybe the Zytiga would work for me. Am I foolish to try it or should I push for Chemo now? Would be grateful for some opinions. Also are side effects as bad for Zytiga?
