Hello my dad was diagnosed in 2014 with Mets to bones and Gleason 9 he has been on Lupron every three months and xgeva, while still on those injections we started Provenge finished that still on shots but then PSA started rising in 2017 so put on Zytiga and Prednisone now Mar 2019 PSA elevated and doctor said no point to do Xtandi but start chemo. I'm scared and terrified for my 81-year young dad. The urologist said to do a Axumin test this was new to me since we only did a total bone scan and CT to the pelvis and abdomen in the past. And the doctor really didn't explain the test or anything about the chemo. he said let's see what the test shows? Any help? I have written before and just need any thoughts. I'm overwhelmed. My dad is naive and doesn't speak English. So I guess the less he knows the better he is but I'm shaking.
Whats the difference between the Axum... - Advanced Prostate...
