Here's the latest stats regarding my dad's treatment:
Diagnosis July 2018
PSA - 680 (mets to 5 retroperitoneal lymph nodes and 2 bones)
PSA doubled to 1200 in one month!
Began treatment 8/18 starting with Casodex. In one week, his PSA dropped to 470! (just Casodex)
Last week received his first Docetaxel infusion, Lupron and Xgeva. WBC=12
WBC dropped to below 1 today. Received Neuopgen. He will probably do more Neupogen the next few days.
Side effects so far: abdominal pain, intermittent constipation, diarrhea and FOUL gas (lol) Feeling fatigued and worn down. Magase is helping his appetite and nausea.
The battle has begun!
