Bipolar Androgen Therapy (BAT)

User
Posted 16 Mar 2018 at 08:08

Hope this helps some people.

Bit of history.

Diagnosed 2012 Gleason 9 Extensive mets throughout the skeleton PSA 3.6

9 cycles Docataxel, Abiraterone, Zoladex, Denosumab,  Cabazitaxel re try Abiraterone, Hormone resistant PSA rising

I did not want to do Chemo again and neither 20 cycles of RT to the prostate (Jamie did his best to sell me this one) 

So last night i had 400mg injection in the bottom of testosterone this will be repeated every 28 days, as all testosterone carries i warning not to give to patients with PC it made things a bit difficult, the injection i had to pay for this was £82.25

So as things progress i will keep this updated, my start point was PSA  5 and i was at castrate level

 

The link below is a PDF about the thinking behind it

Such a loss, Ness is a real star, looking after and comforting their lovely twin girls during this long period (not just the last three weeks) of illness. Si battled his own way and beat the odds for years, no wonder he won the title Si Si superman from many here. Ness and I have been in touch during our journeys, mine is nearly over so I can say with truth I know something of what’s she’s going through. Sending love to Ness and the girls during this sad time.

RIP Si.

love Allison and John xxx

So here are the figures for my first month on BAT therapy

 

DAY 1 PSA 5 testosterone castrate level

DAY 5 PSA 9.9 Testosterone 38.9

DAY 13 PSA 19.9 Testosterone 11.8, interestingly ALP dropped to 56

DAY 22 PSA 19.7 Testosterone 5.4

I should have been castrate by now but at least PSA has started to drop, my PSA at diagnosis was 3.6 and the highest it has been prior to starting BAT was 7.2 

So on Thursday i am meant to be getting my second testosterone injection, need to have a good think about this

Thank you all so much for your comments on my other thread really does mean a lot, i will now post on here now.

So i am having testosterone and PSA done on Monday to see how high it has gone, my main reason for doing this is there really was nothing nice left and i want a great spring and summer with my girls.

One things i forgot to mention is you MUST be pain free this will make pain a lot worse.

I am awaiting a call back from prostate cancer UK what i find really annoying is once you get in my position you have had some pretty sh*t treatments and probably crap side effects, America is now recruiting for phase 3 the actual injection costs £10 the other costs i paid was admin etc due to having to get it privately. 

Why is there no trials starting here, yes its a bit Russian roulette but when you get hormone resistant it really is a pretty nice treatment i really fill good

So do we only run trials for drugs that cost thousands, i have already been asked for details of how others can do this.

Hi AC

Yes the ALP is right at the bottom of the range, i think i was expecting a big rise.

Here is a nice video i found that really explains the use of Testosterone really well compassionateoncology.org/v...

I think my biggest problem at the moment is when i had problems on any other treatment either my nurses or someone on here would have the answer, as things are now no one has the answer.

I did get in contact with a guy in the U.S doing BAT but he wanted to skype me so that we could pray together https://community.prostatecanceruk.org/editors/tiny_mce/plugins/emoticons/img/smiley-embarassed.gif so i will just continue to be in the dark

Hope all is going well for you, i am trying to get Jamie to join me at the meet up at the Mill to do a talk if he is up for it i will contact Prostate cancer UK to see if they want him to come

All the best mate

Hi Lyn

Ness is behind me 100%, once the HT stops working treatment options become quite limiting, and anything that can keep me away from Chemo and thats all that is really left is worth a shot.

I am lucky to have an Onco that lets me have such an input into my treatment, even tho we have many heated arguments he still sticks with me and i am sure over these last 5 years he has learnt a lot.

Ian

A typical month is first week lots of muscle ache, reduced urine flow and thats about it, the next two weeks or so everything is back to normal and then the last week as i head back to castrate level my love of handbags and makeup returns https://community.prostatecanceruk.org/editors/tiny_mce/plugins/emoticons/img/smiley-embarassed.gif

I have put on about 10lb in weight in the last 7 weeks but perhaps thats just fattening me up ready for Chemo.

So just had for me the most important PSA test since diagnosis.

Jamie wanted to stop the BAT therapy after my last PSA increase but has agreed if my PSA drops with today's blood test then i can continue.

As he is on Holiday next week he has left a script with the Chemo nurses to administer it next Thursday on me producing the PSA results.

I am convinced it will work and just need one more injection https://community.prostatecanceruk.org/editors/tiny_mce/plugins/emoticons/img/smiley-laughing.gif for two weeks each month i feel just like i did before i was diagnosed and the option of Chemo again for the third time is not appealing and i will be declining it.

So watch this space, due to the bank holiday i will not get the result till Tuesday but i know it will be a big drop https://community.prostatecanceruk.org/editors/tiny_mce/plugins/emoticons/img/smiley-laughing.gif hopefully

Hope everyone has a great Bank Holiday and enjoy the lovely weather the twins are away camping with scouts so its just me and Ness and a few nice pubs

User
Posted 16 Mar 2018 at 20:01

Hi Chris it was 400 mg the problem is Testosterone will need to be reclassified as they all say do not give to people with prostate cancer

Jamie really has put his neck on the line as he said if i die there are two approved  treatments that i have not had yet, that old Chemo mixo something or other and Rad 223 and questions will be asked why he did not give me them first.

i owe this guy a lot

Well they were giving it to me having missed the fact I had prostate cancer. Can’t be bothered suing. When I rejected RT for the third time they had a specialist nurse come into the room to witness it. They knew it wasn’t there but were simply following protocol. I’m secretly hoping my prof will offer immuno when I’m classically diagnosed as advanced

Posted 22 Mar 2018 at 19:50

Hi Paul,

Well now things have settled down this is what happened

one hour after the injection i felt like i had drunk 8 pints of beer

Friday felt absolutely great

then it went down hill, every muscle in my body ached, urine flow for a couple of days dropped dramatically, felt totally washed out and it all came to a head yesterday when it felt just like i was on chemo all i needed was the metallic taste and it would have been there.

Today things are much better and hopefully that,s it till the next injection

Not quite what i expected but i suppose when your body has had no testosterone for over 5 years something was bound to happen

Bloods again Wednesday when hopefully i am at castrate level

Si, early days still. Do you stick or twist? So difficult when you are pursuing an experimental course of treatment. Perhaps give it another go, if Jamie has other options available to retrieve the situation if the second round shows no improvement? But as we both know, we are running out of options..

I'll be watching closely and hoping for progress whatever you decide.

Posted 09 Apr 2018 at 19:27
Hi Si

Thanks for the update. It's hard decision to make and only you can decide the way forward. What you have to ask yourself is has the PSA peaked and on a downward trend, which is hard to tell this early on. Am I right in thinking Jamie is offering chemo alongside BAT, if so would it be something you would be open to, hitting it hard from all directions. We are all behind you so choose wisely and keep us updated.

All the best

Posted 09 Apr 2018 at 21:34

Thanks Guys

AC stick or twist that is the question

Roy, i have been sending my PSA through to Jamie each week and it was something thrown in for discussion on Thursday

Interestingly a post i did in October 2015

 

"But i am a great believer in playing around with treatments and not letting the cancer get to familiar with them. After looking around the internet for studies on my sort of cancer a friend found one and it made interesting reading.

Records of 3800 men was checked to find men diagnosed with PSA <10 and more than 5 areas of spread, 44 was found, the average response to HT was 7 months, 5 had early chemo 3 responded well but two weeks after finishing the cancer progressed. 30% went to soft tissue and they all died within two years.

So i know Jamie's choice is go back on Abbi, mine is stop HT for six months, my PSA has been undetectable for over two years and i fancy a break and i would like to see what happens.

Another one of Jamie's is 6 cycles of chemo, big No from me i would only do chemo again if my cancer was wide awake and bright eyed and bushy tailed, so that would mean no HT and testosterone patches prior to starting, big big NO from Jamie."

Funny how things turn out

DAY 5 PSA 9.9 Testosterone 38.9

 

DAY 13 PSA 19.9 Testosterone 11.8, interestingly ALP dropped to 56

 

DAY 23 PSA 19.7 Testosterone 5.4

 

Day 28 400mg testosterone injection

 

Day 41 PSA 25.96  ALP 83

Now things become a bit more difficult, Oncologist not happy to continue if my PSA did not drop today, so i will see if my GP will do a PSA test next week and hopefully there might be a drop.

The increase was not as big after this injection so i really want to push for one more injection,
