My friend , 82 years old , was diagnosed with stage 4 PC with Mets and lymph nodes. His first injection was firmagon on October 4, 2018. Then OC switch him to lupron and xygeva every 3 months on 11/6/18. Oncologist said every 3 months will work for him instead of monthly.
Here are his PSA readings:
Readings on 11/20/18 and 1/8/19 for liver function:
AST from 76 to 49
ALT from 83 to 52
Alkaline Phosphate from 275 to 138
Is lupron and xygeva every 3 months a good treatment plan for him?
Are the results very good? It seems like his PSA drops 70 % each month if I am calculating correctly.
Should zytiga be added or is the liver results just a little high for zytiga treatment?
Thanks for reading and looking forward to any comments.
