I am wanting to take my dad for a second opinion. I really don’t care how far we have to travel. I just want the best! We are in Oklahoma. Any suggestions on a progressive specialist who can give hope to my 76yr old dad who failed Zytiga in 7 months and Xtandi did absolutely nothing for him. His PSA is doubling every 3wks. He’s currently at 20 PSA, he’s a Gleason 10 and was diagnosed back in Nov 2017 with a (“superscan”-too many bone mets to count).
He has agreed to try Taxotere and will have his first round this Friday but I want to be prepared and stay ahead of this. He was given 6 months without chemo and 1yr with chemo and I refuse to take that deal. My dad has never been sick in his life before this diagnosis. The diagnosis was an absolute shock because he wasn’t even feeling bad, just losing a lot of weight and he has always been a trim guy and didn’t have weight to lose.
I want to thank everyone that has responded to my posts. We are learning so much and you have given us the drive to fight this with everything we have. You guys are the reason my dad is going to do chemo! He wasn’t going to until I told him about all the responses to my posts. Thank you and God bless you and your families. This is a tough fight, but we will never give up.
