This will not be exactly what you're looking for, but at least it gives an idea. My PSA was 221.6. I was injected with Eligard AND Fermagon at the same time but only Eligard monthly after the first double hit. My next PSA was 21, then another 3 mo. PSA was 6, another 3 mo. Was then 2.6. Approx 18 mo. From beginning my PSA started going up. Doc stopped Eligard and now I get Fermagon (also called Degarelix) every month. Last PSA was 3.2. Hope that helps a little. I was very late getting diagnosed. I received Xgeva for the bone mets, 120+, but had to be taken off that due to a very bad side effect. It was killing my jawbone! I dont think the Xgeva had any effect on PSA counts, but thought i should mention it. Anyway, best wishes to you.
