I am worried about my father

Posted , 3 users are following.

In December 2017 my father had TURP . After biopsy we came to know that he has adenocarcinoma with Gleason score 2+4=6

Bone scan confirm the bone mets.

His PSA was 228 (high due to surgery)

We consult oncologist he prescribed

Zoladex +calutide for January

Zoladex+calutide for February

Then he put only him on calutide

His PSA on April 2018 is 0.978

His PSA on September is 2.5

His PSA on November is 11.3

Doctor said he has now Castration resistance prostate cancer hormone therapy not working more

He now prescribed on December

Casodex + zoladex

His PSA today 31 dec 2018 is Reduced to 9.5

Is he really Castration resistance stage ??

In Castration resistance the can PSA drop 2 points in a month?

What is the treatment at castration stage?

    You need to contact a Cancer Center Treatment of America ASAP. They do NOT charge for consultation. If those numbers you posted are correct I would be on the phone NOW! There are a few locations around the U.S.

    For proper imaging that can shed light on any metastasis, I suggest your father finds a good teaching hospital where he can undergo a PSMA PET CT scan. This will clearly show if there is metastatsis on the bones and if so, the extent of it.

    A regular "bone scan" is not as good a diagnostic tool.

    Good luck!
