hmmm. Whilst on BIRM...PSA has inched up from 1.13 to 1.6~~ however, my latest Axumin pet scan done just a week ago showed much improvement. Spots that appeared in lungs and prostate on previous scan are not showing and abdomen nodes are not showing and ones in pelvic area are mostly shrunk. My oncologist says this is good news! I'm going to keep taking the BIRM as it's made me feel more energy and strength (although within reason...I AM NOT superman anymore...and just accept it....plus I am 62 years old now (as of Jan 24th)
Often take a half-hour nap in the afternoon...but really are having very full days. Just got back from a 5 day road trip to North Florida (from South Florida) to visit with friends in several places.
I'm currently on Lupron, Xtandi (started June 22, 2018), and Xgeva (Started Jan 18th, 2018) ....and BIRM, of course. Also take 30mg of Melatonin at bedtime.
I am advanced & aggressive stage 4, castrate resistant for over a year~~but holding up very well so far. Pic is me in the foreground with partner of 41 years. (I often add a little color to my now "almost non-existent eye brows"....this is au natural. The eyebrows help....LOL.
Life is Beautiful.
