For Prostate Cancer "Diagnosed with Gleason 10 (90% of gland) in 2011. Recurrence after XRT/Implant in 2017 with another biopsy identical to the first. Unsuccessful cryosurgery followed by rapid PSA elevation to 163 with (+) nodes found on CT scan. Started LHRH-agonist plus Zytiga. After four months, by PSA has dropped to 0.3......good stuff......"

For Prostate Cancer "No real side effects to speak of although it hasn't seemed to make a difference but it hasn't affected my PSA either, which continues to rise just not as rapidly."

For Prostate Cancer "My birthdate 17.09.1944 Diagnosed with Metastasic Prostate Cancer Stage 4 since February 2015. I started taking Zytiga 4 pills of 250 mg once a day followed by twice daily of Prednisone 5 mg. These pills are taken in an empty stomach around 10.00 AM every day. After first four weeks PSA dropped from 101 to 5.8 and after 8 weeks of initial date PSA dropped to 0.66. Today I feel very healthy exactly three years with the greatest consideration for Abiraterone Acetate. Very powerful chemo drug."

For Prostate Cancer "How do you pay for the Zytiga? My co-pays are $2500. a month. I've tried to get help and so has my Doctor but because my wife and I both work we can't get any help. I have decided to go off the Zytiga and let nature take its course. I don't want to deplete our savings for a few months of additional life. Stage 4, metastasized to my bones. I had surgery 4 years ago. Age 71"

For Prostate Cancer "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."
