After a stage 4 diagnosis at end of July, MO immediately started me on lupron, short term casodex for the flair (now done), zometa for bones, and docetaxel for chemo. My initial PSA was 11.5 and mets had already spread extensively in spine. Now after chemo round four today, PSA is already down to 0.3 and im feeling pretty good. I asked MO how many rounds we were planning - he essentially said we will keep going on chemo as long as i can take it and as long as its working. Im only 55 and besides some fatigue, am doing ok. So my question is how many of you are on docetaxel for "as long as we can"? And what number round are you on? Does it physically get harder? Or just steady state as it is now for round 4?
