Zytiga (abiraterone): "My dad is 83 years old. He's been through Casodex and Tabi...fighting prostate cancer for nearly 19 years now. Bone metastases already started 3-4 months back. 2 months ago, started Zytiga 4 tabs with Prednisone. So far PSA is going up from 22 to 185 now. Doctor is advising to continue for another 30 days before giving up. Side effects (not sure ) include frequent nausea/vomiting. However, the pain on the back has been reduced."

Zytiga (abiraterone): "One month later- PSA is 0.16! Sure, it's not a cure bit it's a nice respite from PSA anxiety. Liver tests all well."

Zytiga (abiraterone): "PSA 28 to 4 in one week. Fatigue only side effect. Prednisone effect- no pain in bad knee(which has nothing to do with prostate cancer)."
