I think that's great, Mr. Bill, that you have a PSA test coming up in early November.
The way October is flying by --- it won't be long until then!
You have the assurance --- mentally and physically --- that if you and your oncologist see a "blip on the radar" --- you can then discuss things, and adjust things, accordingly.
Peace of mind, right there, my compadre!
That being said --- with me being on ZYTIGA for over six years now --- would it be wise to run lab work again in December or early January --- just to be proactive?
My oncologist has me run labs, each month --- various components, each time.
At first, I remember wondering if that frequency was overzealous --- but as time goes on, it has been to my benefit. My oncologist is amazing in his ability to "drill down" into specifics.
I get to the lab early, so that ALL lab tests have been assessed before I see my oncologist --- that same day.
I greatly prefer visiting with him in person about my lab results, rather than checking my online results. He provides thoughts, interpretation, and context that I find very helpful.
His dedication to lab work specifics allows me to maintain my health goals, energy levels, and active life.
I think your lab work will be a helpful & indicative tool for assessing how things are going for you --- in terms of adjusting the ZYTIGA dosage.
Here's to staying focused on the future, Mr. Bill ---- and looking ahead to the future!
I will watch for future posts and updates from you, good sir!
Appreciative of your contributions here on the website, over time!
Here's to the weekend ahead ----
