My husband was diagnosed with an aggressive (Gleason 8 4+4) form of PCa stage IV with extensive bone mets in February. His PSA was 32. He went on Casodex in early March and Firmagon in April. His last blood test showed a PSA of 0.33. I would like to see it lower than this. Can anyone with similar circumstances please let me know how long it took them to reach .01 or close? I am thinking of asking our oncologist if he would consider a triple blockade with Avodart or the like. My husband has become super fit since his Dx and has even gone off his low dose statin and BP meds. He looks the best I have ever seen and says he feels amazing. But the PSA level is of concern to me even though the doctors he sees all make comments like, "Well it's going the right way." We live in Canada and I'm thinking of getting a second opinion with Dr. Lam in Marina del Rey.
