First diagnosed with PC in October 2007 aged 63. Had robotic surgery to remove prostate in Jan 2008.
Gleason 7 (4+3) 3 months after op my psa was .5 then went on trial of 6 doses of chemo. This knocked psa down to .1. PSA then started to creep up after six months then had radiation. Since then have been on Lupron, Casodex, Avodart, Estrodot patches and Metaformin. In last six months psa started to rise and last test was 2.8. Had MRI which showed two lymph nodes in my groin were enlarged.
So my oncologist has put me on Xtandi combined with Lupron, I have been taking it for the last two weeks and will have blood test in two weeks to see if it is working.
Side effects so far is some brain fog and tiredness.
I,m hoping I can get a few years out of Xtandi then maybe something else will be available.
