Hey y'all,

Another Cabazitazel session, getting 12 total to put me at 33 chemos in 7 years this July

PSA ticked up 0.1 to 2.5 last time 🤔

MO may do PSMA scan and biopsy any large enough lymph nodes, if PSA continues upward.

Still on Lupron 3 every months, and doing Intermittent Fast for 16 hrs/day.

Did two day low carb fast prior to this session.

For 1st time, pharmacist put a colored bag over Cabazitazel, does it degrade under fluorescent lights?

Fight On

“33 chemos in 7 years this July”………this has to be some sort of a Guinness World Record……yikes! Does any PCa oncologist anywhere know about this?

You are The MAN.

How have your bloody cells changed over the time period using chemo that frequently? It hasn’t put your blood bells into any dangerously low ranges?

Hey, mild anemia and lower Hgb, white cell count pretty normal. So, no huge impact ThankfullyRandy

That's good Randy. I thought it might have a more negative effect than that. Good to hear your situation is going well. George

Can you please explain to me how did you/your MO made the decision of starting Cabazitazel ? my father is currently on Docetaxel and PSA is starting to rise, it increased 33% over this month so I think we need to change soon, thanks a lot

Had 15 Taxotere sessions in 2015, and a 6 more as a rechallenge in early 2021, but that failed. MO then switched to Cabazitaxel this year, and may still add CarboplatinRandy
