My dad’s appt yesterday was very confusing to me. He had his 4 week appointment since being switched to Xtandi from Zytiga.
Zytiga failed after 7 months and now onto Xtandi. We still do not have the PSA results however we did get his hemoglobin back and his alkaline Phos. His hemoglobin went from a 11.8 to 10.8 in 4wks and has his oncologist concerned, yet his Alk phos improved from 351 to 293. Isn’t that a good sign? I’m confused because the Dr told my dad to start thinking about taxotere. He seemed concerned and we haven’t even gotten the PSA back. Can anyone offer any feedback on this?
Also I wanted to thank everyone because I asked for him to be put on Metformin and he wrote a Rx. Thank you! I would never have known about Metformin if it wasn’t for this group.
On a side note...why aren’t they prescribing it if they know it could help?
