A quick update. I'm on cycle 5 now, 3rd day after infusion. Having the typical crappy feeling, low energy and loose stools. A touch of peripheral neuropathy started late last cycle and continues. But it's very minor, mainly in just one finger. Able to do a 2 mile walk today, but slowly and with a few rest stops.
Having a celebration over my PSA which continues to go down. Was .2 on the last blood test 7/6/2017. 4 months ago I was at 400 so I'm really happy about
the progress. Alk phase was 600 at diagnosis, now at 72. Looks like the bone mets are in full retreat and still under fire.
One more cycle to go!
