After 3.5 months on BAT things have taken a disasterous turn. PSA jumped to nearly 7000, liver enzymes surged, and fatigued increased. My oncologist immediately restarted me on Xtandi which I had been on for awhile back in in 2015. Unfortunate that doesn't appear to be morning. Urine output is way down, even with a diuretic. Swelling has increased in groin, legs and belly. I have been self cathing for a couple of weeks daily, but I was told to increase to twice a day. Almost immediately I developed blood in urine, so here I sit in the hospital for the first time in 60 years. Monitoring liver and kidney function and urine content using Foley catheter. First time in the 4 years since my diagnosis I have really felt how quickly this damn disease can turn on us. Thanks for listening.
