Breezed through chemo no 5, scans showed significant response just prior to number 5 and psa taken the morning before showed an increase of 7 to 86, Doc says don't worry with the good news on scans, tested testosterone, xtandi always had it at undetectable, now back up to 20. Thinking of using up a few extra boxes of Nilandron I had from years ago to see what it does for psa, Nilandron worked good in the past for me. I was up late on dex watching the GS warriors and movies, and Tiredness of my body hidden by dex caused some hip pain, took an advil, went to bed and now up after 4 hours wide awake ,hip still hurts a little but feels better after 4 hrs., no taste loss, no neuropathy, no nail issues, no real side effects, Plan to extend out beyond 6 cycles due to good scan results and no SE.I was told by my expert to wait a year before a re challenge with xtandi, so that is what I am shooting for. Feeling good about shrinking those tumors!!
