My husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer at the age of 52 in April 2017.
Devastatingly it had already progressed significantly to the bones.
After hormone treatment and a cycle of chemo his psa reduced and we had 6 months of stability.
Unfortunately in June last year my husband started to feel unwell, aching, fatigued and just 'off'. His psa started to rise again and he was scanned. Results showed enlarged lymph and some activity in the base of the spine. He was prescribed Enzalutamide.
He continued to feel unwell and his psa kept rising so was scanned again. We were devastated to hear the cancer has progressed to his lungs and stumoch.
We are now on with chemotherapy again, but this is making him feel very unwell and he is only two in with 8 more to go.
I'm frightened! I don't know what to expect, if this will work as it did before and we have a few 'normal' months, afterwards or if this is how life will be going forward. What are the success rates when the cancer has spread like this?
It would be good to hear from anyone going through this or who has been at this stage.
