We got good news!!!

Monkeymamma profile image

My husbands PSA finally dropped by ~50% within 2 weeks!!!!! It’s at 111.8 right now! He had a good initial response to hormone treatment, then lingered for almost 2 months with only slight decreases. In mid December, Zytiga was added and that seems to have really made a big difference. He had to stop taking Zytiga yesterday because his ALT was getting very high, but we hope to restart it next week.

I was so surprised that I ask them to double check that they were looking at the right patient record!!! First good news we’ve gotten for a while. God is good.

Fantastic news to get the new year started!

My PSA dropped 90% in first 6 weeks on Luprine after climbing 20% in 6 weeks after prostatectomy. Glad to see he is having positive results to his hormone treatments now.

Great news! Zytiga seems to be working for my husband right now too. Will hope your husband's PSA continues to decline!
