My husband saw his consultant yesterday who told him his psa had gone up from 0.6 to 2.1.
A little history - his psa rose last September from 0.7 to 1.6, his consultant then decided to introduce Casodex to his Zolodex prescription. This lead to a fall to 0.6 with which we were all delighted
The consultant then advised cutting out the Casodex to see what happened. Yesterday, it became clear that Zolodex alone is not doing the trick (hope you're following all this :)
We really don't know what this means. How effective is the Casodex compared to just Zolodex? What comes next if the casodex doesn't keep the psa down?
Sorry to ask the unanswerable but the only response we got from the consultant was
"The cancer seems to be winning the battle"
We are feeling pretty low but would just like to know (if that's possible) what this means and what to expect
Thank you, Julia
