Welcome to HealingWell. You are not a typical new arrival here and unfortunately you won't find many peers. A 6 month rise of 500+ is as high as I have seen here. We do have a member who made it back to undetectable from 3200, that was done by starting hormonal therapy. He did take an herbal supplement as well but not sure what it was. His name is Todd and he may be checking in today. I understand you started Tax/Prednisone. Have you discontinued Casodex? Any attempts at Keto or Nilandron?
I will keep a watch for someone in your situation.
Peace to you...hang in there...we'll hope the Taxotere does good work.
