My husband is 58, he started on Sep 2017 a total of 3 firmagon (degarelix) shots every 28 days, plus zytiga and prednisone.
We went to MD yesterday and switched him to Lupron every 3 months.
My husband has 2 lymph nodes in the pelvic area.
He had Prostatectomy on February 2011 and Radiation after a rising psa of 0.5 2014
His PSA on Sep was 8.7 and thank God it is down to 0.1 The million dollar question is... will it be a good time to start chemotherapy now or to wait?
The MD said his cancer is responding good to the treatment but I wonder for how long?
Can hormone, plus early chemotherapy can take better care of the cancer then hormone alone or isn't that much of a difference?
Thanks, I hope the best for you all.
