My father is on his third cycle of taxotere and recently switched doctors within the same practice (language, scheduling, and one doc being out). I recall the first doctor noting that at some point my dad would go off casodex and just have Lupron and zomeda and that he didn't need to have radiation yet. When my dad went on his second visit to the new doctor and highlighted that he feels back pain, the doctor noticed an MRI result he didn't see before and said he does need radiation and a few weeks ago said he will do casodex and Lupron for the foreseeable future. Has anyone here started treatment for advanced Pca with chemo and Lupron and casodex and also radiation? Any concerns? And any info on whether combo hormone therapy results in one of the drugs to having a reverse effect over time ? I've read mixed reviews on this.
Your experience on this is much appreciated. The doctor said he is concerned over my dad's back pain which has caused additional stress.
