My father has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. There is some metastasis so surgery was not an option. He is 79 and currently on hormone therapy. The doctor has suggested a relatively new drug, Zamoda (not sure of spelling), which is infused monthly. Does anyone have any experience with this drug regarding outcomes, side-effects, problems, etc? Would appreciate any information
