A little more information.
On May 16th I will start my in this trial. The day starts with a Blood draw at 0740, and EKGs at 0830 and 1200. After the first EKG I will start taking Xtandi and possibly CPI-1205. The random drawing has not been done yet, and I will not know until this day if I have been selected for CPI-1205.
Prior to starting the trial:
4/24 Blood draw (PSA up to 2.12 from 1.82 in three weeks), EKG, Bone Scan and CAT scan. (Scans indicated that mets are still substantially reduced or healed except for one the L4 vertebrae which appear to be a little bigger - no pain)
5/6 Prostate biopsy - samples for the trial and for future genetic testing. This is NOT the dreaded trans anal biopsy that we all have endured. I will provide details afterwards, but it will be performed while I am in an MRI and medicated similar to a colonoscopy.
It is going well and I am looking forward to participating either way. Lots of tests and lots of scans in the first two months. I will keep you all posted.
For those of you who follow my postings, thank you. Another little milestone is occurring this weekend. My youngest brothers daughter is having her first communion this weekend. Tick. Live goes on around us and we must enjoy it.
