Yes contact the hospital straight away. You really can’t take any risks with this.

Bose, nobody on this forum can say. You must speak to your father's oncologist about this.

Hi Bose, this treatment is likely to produce a temporary remission, but with luck, that could last for years (as I described in my previous reply to you, based on the results of clinical trials). Every patient is different and so it is impossible to make a prediction for your father of how long he will respond. Also, PSA is not the only important measure. The other factors are how he is feeling (symptoms) and the results of the scans he will after the end of the chemo.

Good luck with everything!

You need to explain what you mean by TLC - it is not a measurement used in the UK. And you really need to stop opening new conversations - add your new comments to one of your many existing threads.

Bose, you have said in previous threads that your dad's cancer has spread to his spine, and was severe enough to cause SCC. He is never going to go into remission. The chemo can help the hormones to work for longer and can reduce some of the side effects but that is all.
