Xtandi ... (early) side effects:
This is day 11 for me on Xtandi. Zytiga did not work for me. Taxotere did - but 11-sessions fairly well did me in physically. Lupron still going ... and still am an emotional rollercoaster!
Only side effects so far on Xtandi ... two mornings of the past 4 with very loose bowel movements. And ... for some reason, the past three nights, I am waking up at between 2:30am and 4:30am ... then back to sleep in 90 minutes or so! That's a new one!!! Of course, it takes little to tire me - but no apatite loss or bone/muscle pain yet!
Will be seeing the Onco on the 5th - in less than two days now - for a toxicology test (for the Xtandi) and for the next PSA. The last PSA test was about 5-weeks ago - and was just over 23 - nearly doubled after stopping Taxotere in April!
Any great long-term Xtandi stories out there???
