Good Morning All , I started my Eligard ( 6 month )on Dec.9 2021, Zytiga ,(250mg ) Prednisone ( 5 mg) on a low fat breakfast on Feb. 1 2022. My Testosterone is at 9ng/dl . My PSA was at 4.19 on Dec. 2021 . My primary dx was gleason 4+3 downgraded to 3+4 by John Hopkins . I had Sbrt , 5 sessions on 2016 to my prostate. My PSA hovered in the mid 1s for 5 yrs till last Dec , 4.19 . V.A gave me a Pylarify scan and there was 1 hot spot on a pelvic lymph node . i had 3 sessions of SBRT to the lymph-node then 25 sessions if IMRT , tomotherapy to my pelvic area . So from PSA 4.19 on Dec 09 to 2.02, 1.15 , 0.4 , 0.27 , 0.22 , 0.4, 0.27 , 0.22 , 0.04 , and 0.03 as of last week . My question is should my PSA be going down more rapidly ? Is the Zytiga doing its job fast enough ? Thanks Much , SemperFi , JJ
