Searching for some advice on some news we received. Dad has been having alot of back pain. Onco. ordered an MRI and called right away to say the cancer is pressing on the spinal cord and also a vertebrae. He is recommending radiation right away.
Xtandi appears to have failed as PSA is rising (his PSA has never been a good indicator as at Dx was only 9 when his Gleason was 5+4=9)
As a recap Dad's been on Lupron since 2011 (still), Zytiga (worked for 6 months), Clinical trial of Galeteron (didn't work), Taxotere (worked for 12 months), Xtandi (for the past 6 months- not working).
We are thinking about asking about Xofiogo.... any other advice? We were advised Provenge would not be a treatment option. He does have lymph node involvement, does that rule out Xofiogo?
He's a 5+4 Gleason Dx in Dec 2010....
