My father was advanced Pc, with Psa of 1500 and 8 gleason. He started adt and abiraterone a month ago. His last psa last week was 650 so he seems to be reacting to it. He has had no side effects from this treatment.
However we are still wondering if we should add chemio as i have read repeatedly that it might be better to go "all in" right away. My father is 75y and was in good health before this but is not sporty and quite frail. I am afraid the chemio could be too hard on him and am hoping the abiraterone can be enough for now. I would love to get your advice on this.
On a side note, it seems adding Metformin is a no brainer with his adt treatment.
I saw this research though and wondered if anyone had any comments on it
