I finished my last infusion of Provenge last week.There are 3 two weeks apart
I wonder if anyone has taken this in the last 6-9 months and how you are doing
Its a very new treatment

I finished Provenge on Oct 12, 2012 and had minimal side effects until the third infusion. I had chills and flu like symptoms for about three days and OK since.
Unfortunately, my PSA and mets continue to rise, however my Oncologist thinks this may be an auto-immune response to the Provenge. I have not found any similar cases anywhere in the Provenge literature.
Good Luck with your treatments.
