My husband, who feels and looks as fit as can be, just got his test results back...Nadir was 0.24 in August. In November, it shot up to 1.9 and today, one month on, it is 3.2.
Also the Alkaline phosphatase is rising rapidly. He is on bicalutamide and Firmagon. Onc. said last month, if the PSA continues to be up on today's test, he will pull back the bicalutamide, but what will this achieve exactly? I think he should be on Xtandi, which is available up here in Canada. Just found out he is on vacation for tomorrow's visit, and that his partner will see us instead. Any suggestions? I feel I have to press for something as "pulling back on bicalutamide" seems to be rather feeble.
