My DH had one round of xofigo. The side effects weren't too awful in his case, and the reduction in pain and mets was significant. I don't know if anything has changed, but we were told this tx is primarily for bone pain control, not met reduction. IDK in your hubbies case. You didn't mention Zytiga or Xtandi. Has he had either of those? The side effects of those are generally less difficult on the body, from what I have seen. I was surprised to see mitoxantrone. Gary had that too, but few docs seem to use it.
Best wishes in whatever your DH next tx.
PS...your signature just showed up and I see the Zytiga and xtandi. Gary did a retry on the xtandi after chemo and it worked! Maybe ask about
another go at Zytiga for your DH. Just throwing out ideas.😊
