I had a TURP in July and the pathology report came back that my prostate cancer cells were small-cell neuroendocrine type, while my original diagnosis was adenocarcinoma Gleason 10.
The cancer has grown up the side of my bladder, which has caused a bladder bleed which needed a repair under general anaesthetic.
I've recently been through 5 fractions of Cyberknife treatment (maybe more to follow) and my medical oncologist has put me on a new chemo regime of cisplatin and etoposide, hoping to get some local control. I have completed the first of four rounds. It's knocked me around, but has not been as bad a docetaxel.
I am interested to hear of anyone else who has been down this path.
I have had the same number of bone mets (about 10) since diagnosis 2.5 years ago.
Some of my bone mets have progressed, so I got spot radiation which worked well, but this growth into my bladder is new and likely due to the small cell cancer behaving badly.
Thanks in advance.
