As mentioned previously, Enzalutamide proved a spectacular failure for me and just to add insult to injury it departed from my life on 23/09/19 leaving me with a PSA of 214 which is the highest that I have ever had.
So it is now time for the so called "golden bullet" to finally make an appearance. Welcome to Lutetium 177, it has been a while coming, , so time to show if all the recent hype about this new drug really does live up to expectations.
I had my 1st infusion yesterday at the London Clinic and it went well.
I arrived at 11.00 and had my cannula installed and then it was a good 1 - 2 hours on a saline drip until the bag was approx 50% full. At that point the radioactive screens went up around me and the main man arrived in a radioactive shielded box. . It appeared to then be added to the saline drip by a contraption to ensure it was watered down. A bit like having whisky with water I suppose. So by 4.30 it was all done and I was ready to go home following a check with a gieger counter to ensure i was within reasonable limits. It all seemed incredibly easy
My next infusion is in 6-8 weeks time, so it will be interesting to see what my upcoming blood tests and scans show,
Keeping positive as always
