I had an app't. with oncologist today and called his office...told them the truth..I was too exhausted to go out at all and if Dr. called, spending time with me via phone he could charge so he wouldn't feel he was losing $'s talking with advice quite long. Dan, I did ask about a steroid to perhaps help with the exhaustion from Xtandi, He said my hemoglobin as beginning to rise and when a bit higher then the steroid which wouldn't have bad effects at that point. some of exhaustion cd. be yet from Provenge and could have started with the Provenge, and then Xtandi also, but instead of increasing dosage to 2 pills now to go back and take one for now. As most of you guys taking it do so in evening he said OK..and instead of taking the appetite med with dinner to take it when I get up in AM. He will have the visiting nurse give me that procrit every wk. and definitely wants to see me in 3 wks.
So, Dan with your advice re Steroid and reading where some guys took xtandi at night.....I learned a few thgs. Thks. again Dan for ALL your advice!
