What happens to the cancer patient who has had the Provenge treatment and it no longer works.
I had Provenge 2 years ago this summer. I could not tell if it did anything or not so I couldn't tell if/when it started working, if/when it worked, or if/when it stopped. I was/am such a late stage they have/are throwing everything at me they have in their "toolboxes." Six months later my Radiologist giving me Radium 223 (Zofigo) didn't have much good to say about Provenge, however two of my Oncologists think that type of treatment is the wave of the future when perfected. As I had no side effects whatsoever, I figured anything that has the potential to help, why not. Good luck with your fight.
