Hope all is well to all. I am scheduled for first Provenge treatment on October 22, 2010, one of three, and am wondering if anyone has experienced or has an appointment for such? My last PSA was 1.58 with Casodex failure, lasted about 5 months, stage IV, with some micrometastatic lesions to upper spine. Not too bad at his point. Have been on Lupron since November, 2008 and surgery in 2002 with a PSA of 2.4. Gleason at biopsy was 3+3, with final 3+4 after surgery. Some discrepancy with Gleason score, as biopsy score was later read by another facility as 4+4. I guess different people interpret the slides with some degree of question. At this point I am counting the days, 31 to go. Will report how this Provenge works out for those of you who may need this later. The Aberaterone trials can't end soon enough for me, and that would be my next choice. We all have to keep the faith that new treatments will be approved at a faster pace since it is a race against time for most of us. Good luck to all, nothing but the best!!!!
