I am a 74 year old male who was enjoying great health until a routine exam in mid July of 2012 showed an elevated alkaline phosphatase. Further testing showed bone involvement. I lit up like a Christmas tree on the bone scan, and the ct scan showed prostate problems. A needle biopsy showed a high Gleason on 14 of the 16 samples (5+5). I am currently taking 50mg of Bicalutamide daily and will be getting injections of Lupron and Xgeva as soon as Medicare approves same.
