My father diagnosed with prostrate cancer spread to his bones. He is doing well. My question is after about 15 months on lupron injections monthly his PSA started to rise so the doctor suggested we do Provenge and we did that now I'm told his PSA is still rising so the doctor said he will put him on xgeva or xtandi along with the lupron injections. What I want to know if Lupron is no longer keeping his PSA levels down why do we have to continue on lupron? Secondly when we were told to do provange he never told us my dad would immediately go on pills after PROVANGE TREATMENT. So now I wonder between lupron, provange and now xtandi what is going to keep him alive the longest how do they know when they are not giving provange a chance to do it's magic and why continue lupron injection indefinitely if it hasn't been able to keep his PSA down? This all sounds confusing to me?
Thank you all kindly I hope so,eons who has been through this can help me?
