I'm a 76 1/3 yo that has spent 2 1/4 yrs on Zytiga had IMRT, SBRT to the bone and on Xgeva. Psa was <.1 for 8 mos and has risen to .2 Alk Phos looks good. I'm expecting PSA will not go down and plan to try again to get Dexamethasone prescribed in lieu of pred. Will provide my MO in advance of next visit a copy of the Switch trial. I was tested for ARV-7 and I have no positive activity and would like to go on Xtandi next or chemo. Am I not aggressive enough? Just a note, I could only tolerate 500 mg of Zytiga for a 2 yr period which make me think Xtandi may work better. We have to schedule blood work draws now rather than walk in. Next MO visit in 2 weeks and I'm on a 6 week cycle.
We are having a short sugar season although there is a good snow pack in the sugar woods. Maple syrup is not part of my diet anymore but it keeps my body and mind off my health and the virus. We have 3 cases in our county here in VT but afraid its going to climb. Thanks to all. Bob
