Lupron + Zytiga reduced the clear mets on my ribs to the point that they were hard to find on the last bone scan, but Zytiga also shut down my liver, so I had to stop it.
Lupron + Xtandi had a couple of "greatly improved" months, but that has stopped, leaving me more or less stable at a PSA of 1.4 ( fluctuation of +/- .2 in the last three tests). I've not had a new bone scan since September. Currently I'm on 6 month Lupron shots, and taking the Xtandi daily
I would ask about
those, but both require monthly blood work and careful attention when done right.
