My Husband had an Axium pet scan that showed 2 lymph nodes in the pelvis. He already had prostatectomy in 2011 and Radiation in 2014. He begun taking zytga 1000mg a day plus the firmagon shot every 28 days. Has anybody been on this treatment and for how long? Do you stop soon after psa drops?
We visited the radio oncologist last Friday and told us that he would have been surprised if the medical oncologist gave him firmagon instead of lupron. I heard lupron causes a flare, is this the reason the med oncologist wants to keep him on fermagon? This medical oncologist is very knowledgeable, however he seem bothered with questions. I want to get inform to get the best treatment for my husband. Any comment will help. My prayers for all of you. Thank you in advance.
