Well I had my first Oncologists appointment in Adelaide on the 10th April, at the New R.A.H. with Dr Tan, a Medical Oncologist who specializes in PCa.
I had an awesome visit and came away with "some" good news. My PSA has dropped from 10 to 1.2 in 4 weeks on a Cosudex/Triptorelin combo.
Given this result we decided to leave Chemo as an option for a while and I am now on ZYTIGA as well Prednisolone, and staying on the triptorelin. Also be having 3 week blood tests to keep an eye on Liver function as well as everything else.
6 weeks time will be a skype link with the Onc. and GP
Next visit to the Oncologist will be in July. Just a casual 1500km drive! Good job we have a caravan, so we can turn it into a mini adventure.
I have some concerns about side effects, but the Onc. has given me his mobile number so I can contact him for advice. He has also briefed my GP, who will be working with us while I make this journery.
What can possibly go wrong?
If anyone has any advice for the Zytiga, it will be gratefully accepted.
Hope you are all feeling well.
