Hello! My name is Helga.
I apologize in advance for my English, because this is not my native language.
But I try. and with the help of a translator in the 21st century I hope it is possible.
If this offends anyone, I apologize again.
I have read many forums in my country, but little useful information and real stories. However, this forum is really helpful.
My situation: Father, 74 years old. T3aNxM1, Prostate cancer. Gleason score 4+5 (bone metastases).
Therapy: Abiraterone acetate (Zytiga), denosumab (xgeva), goserelin (Zoladex).
We have successfully shot down PSA in 2018 (0-0,2), after a long examination, biopsy, hospitalization, weight loss, etc. and my father was OK, he seemed healthy at times.
in November 2020 PSA 30,2. In May 2021 PSA 140.
Hormone therapy doesn't work.
CT scan showed liver metostasis and bone progression extensively.
I was thinking about immunotherapy, but the BCRA2 test result was negative.
Doctors only offer chemo (Docetaxel).
And I think this is the worst offer and I am very afraid for his health, given his age, weakness, and I will have to tell him about the incurable diagnosis.
I need advice, good or bad stories, recommendations and whatever.
Thanks in advance
