My father 63 Years, diagnosed in May 2017, with metastatic PC, gleason score 9. He was put on firmagon, after 5 months disease got hormone refractory. He was in pains so put on Docetaxel since December 17, underwent orchiedectomy in April this year. Now the Psa are rising again and time to stop Docetaxel. He is in very bad pains with HB declining ( due to bone marrow involvement). He finds difficult getting off his bed without support. Medical onco and radiologist are suggestin radiation for 2 spots but say wont be very helpful. After that they inte d to start Zytiga.
Really in a bad situation. Any advice would be of help to whether we should go ahead with radiation when it wont relieve much of pain since the diswase is in the entire leg and multiple locations in the spine.
How soon do you think Zytiga would start acting and for how much time do you all think zytiga will remain effective.
Thanks so much for reading and answering. Sending positive and healing vibes to you and your loved ones.
