Newly diagnosed with metastasis to distant lymph nodes (peritoneal) but no bone. Prostate Biopsy showed adenocarcinoma in 12 of 15 samples, all GS 4+4, except two 4+5. Prostate is 102 g. I’m 70.
My question has to do with when Lupron and or Zytiga become effective.
Started Lupron 35 days ago and zytiga 15 days ago. My PSA before starting treatment was 8.4. Lab now reports PSA of 4.2. I keep reading about people with fractional PSA’s, but mine sure isn’t.
Is it too soon for these to take affect? Or is this implying I’m castrate resistant?
