I know everyone is different. However, my understanding was that ADT could be effective for many years. I recently read a post that for metastatic men, it's usually only effective for months. I am deflated. My husband has been on 4 month Lupron since Jan 2021 and Abiraterone 1000mg since March. His original regimen was ordered for 2 years, but doesn't sound from what I read that it will be effective that long. Any feedback is appreciated.
His PSA has gone from 51.3 in Dec 2020 to 0.3 in May.. should get another test this week. Now I'm very scared of results.
Our RO has also been slow about getting him in to start his Radiation to the prostate. He said to expect a call the beginning of June. Nothing yet. The care coordinator yesterday said she will check into it and call...like she had no idea Jim's supposed to have treatment. And she hasn't called yet. Jim thinks if there was urgency they'd have us in there by now, so don't pester them. I'm panicking and want to pester them. If they don't radiate the lymph nodes does the prostate and bone met even matter?
Sorry this is run on, I'm very churned up right now.. i was actually more upset his coordinator didn't know about the RT plan than the delay itself.. The RO himself called us three times the end of May, then nothing.
Thank you all
