Hello everyone, not posted for a while but brief update:
OH diagnosed advanced Pca in July 2019, Been on hormone injections from outset, docetaxel, RT and Enzalutamide. Recent increased bone pain and PSA doubling monthly. Bone scan shows increase in existing lesions and new lesions in the bones (spine, pelvis, sacrum, hip and thigh) CT scan looks like Enzo has kept lymph nodes at bay.
Offered cabazitaxel, radium 223 or investigation of Lututium 177. Off to London next week for PSMA PET scan and consultation.
Need to discover costs and weigh up benefits/side effects/survivability across the three treatments. My husband is not keen on my chemo because of the side effects. He asked what his life expectancy would be if he had no treatment, million dollar question but best guess 4-9 months. So that made him realise that treatment was definitely the only way forward still.
Has anyone else experienced the Lutetium treatment, looks like side effects not too bad but I suppose still early days on overall survivability?
Any help or advice much appreciated
