What's the usual next step after finishing RT while continuing ADT plus Z&P?
I'm stage 4, GS8 with enlarged LN's in my pelvic region.
- I've been doing ADT since January (Firmagon then switched to Elligard)
- Zytiga & Prednisone since February
- Finished 9 weeks of IGRT, 2 week's ago
- PSA went down from 86 to 1.05 when IGRT started
I have my next 3-month Elligard injection this week followed by an appointment with my MO to review the bloodwork they'll do then and to "chat". In a few weeks I also have a follow-up with my RO.
What is the normal next steps? I'll be continuing the ADT plus the Z&P. Do I just watch for a rise in PSA for now? Are there other things I should be doing?
