I am writing on behalf of my father. On tuesday (22 October) this week he was diagnosed with stage 4 prostrate cancer that has metastisised to the hip bone and spine. The biopsy has returned a gleason of 10. His PSA was 5 in the beginning of august and is currently sitting at 14 after the tests this week. He has started with casodex this week. Depending on other tests on monday we will, i assume, pick up treatment levels and or methods.
I am very uncertain of what to expect and all that i have read other than stating to keep positive (which i agree 100% with) does not give real prognosis etc.. I ndestand the current situation does not look good but i feel that there is so much more that can be done, am i wrong?
What other treatment should we be looking at?
What do you expect with such agressive growth? will the casodex work as aggresively?
I would really appreciate any information
