My dad has advanced prostate cancer.
He does not have any bone metastasis at this time.
He just completed 6 rounds of chemotherapy and the tumors have shrunk significantly!
He now has to decide the next step of treatment.
He is 72, his Gleason is 9, and he has metastasis in his pelvis/pelvic lymph nodes.
His doctor suggested a couple of options:
1) only continue ADT and monitor PSA monthly
2) start Zytiga now
3) more rounds of chemo
What is everyone’s opinion?
I want him to get Immunotherapy. Everything I read says it extends life. IMHO life extension is what it is all about not PSA level.
Does anyone know of any trials for Immunotherapy (Provenge, check point inhibitors etc) he could get in at this time?
Does anyone have any additional advice on how to beat this darn thing back?
Many heart felt thanks and love to all those fighting,
