Just wanted to share a happy news. DAD is finally undetectable with latest PSA of 0.001 (down from 0.103 in November 2019). Going to visit the MO tomorrow for the future course of action.
PSA and treatment history:
June 24, 2019 - 114 (orchiectomy/lupron and casodex for 3 weeks)
August 03, 2019 - 4.46 (started 1000 mg abiraterone/zytiga and prednisone 10 mg)
September 06, 2019 - 0.837 (one month on abiraterone/zytiga - sugar was high so lowered prednisone from 10 mg to 5mg)
November 06, 2019 - 0.103 (3 months on abiraterone/zytiga - liver enzymes were elevated so stopped abiraterone for 2 weeks -referred to liver specialist - once clearance received - restarted abi. but MO asked to take only 750 mg with some light meal (breakfast with ghee/healthy fat added) as was scheduled to travel abroad and said would require to monitor liver numbers with full dose.
February 10, 2020- 0.001 (liver numbers seem to be fine, cholesterol has increased though - visiting MO tomorrow, hopefully he will be as happy with the numbers as i am)
Thankful and sending across prayers for him and everyone in the fight.
