My husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer in July 2018, spread to lymph nodes, pelvis, spine and left femur. Psa over 1500, Gleason 9 (4+5). He was immediately started on 3 monthly hormone injections and given 4 weeks of bicalutimide.
He has just completed 6 sessions of docetaxal, initial response was good with a drop in Psa to 101. But by the fourth session his Psa had started to rise again and is currently 204, at least it's no longer in the thousands but it's basically doubled in 6 weeks.
We are both very worried by this unexpected result (ok, so we're completely bricking it!), any thoughts/advice please? Oncologist has told us 'don't panic yet', it's the 'yet' that has completely freaked us out.
Thank you for your support.
