Hi, after 18 months of hormone therapy + xtandi, my fathers MO decided to give him vacation!
My father was diagnosed with stage 4 Gleason 9 with few bone mets in late 2019!
The MO even asked him to stop xtandi!
Being off medication, I afraid the cancer start progressing again,
I also know the vacation May prolong the adt resistance.
Right now I’m extremely frightened! so worry for him, although he is so pleased with the news thinking he can have normal life again!
How long vacations normally last? Is it safe to be off medication with bone mets? How often he must have scans while off medication?
Thanks for your attention. I’m looking forward to your replies.
