20.05.2015 5.80 20.05.15
AT THE HUNTSMAN CANCER CLINIC IN SLC , UTAH WAITING FOR RESULTS...
PSA UP.. HORMONES NOT WORKING.. LOOKS LIKE ZYTIGA FOR ME.
WHEN I HAVE TIME I WILL WRITE THE WHOLE STORY ....
       
23.05.2015 5.80 20.05.15
MY STORY STARTS BACK IN JULY 2000 WITH SUBTLE INCREASES STARTING AT .6 IN JULY 2000
THEN INCREASING TO 6.22 IN SEPT. 2009. IT WASN'T THE MAGNITUDE OF PSA , BUT THE
VELOCITY THAT SHOULD HAVE RAISED A RED FLAG..... BIOPSIES IN OCT. 2009 SHOWED A
GLEASON SCORE OF 4 + 3 = 7B BOTH SIDES.....

SURGERY SCHEDULED FOR 01 DEC 2009 ..... PATHOLOGY SHOWED ----- PROSTATE CANCER
STAGE III pT3bNoMx ..... PSA DROPPED TO NON-DETECTABLE BY JAN 2010 FOLLOWING
SURGERY.... BUT THEN STEADILY INCREASED FROM 0.03 IN APR 2010 TO 0.20 IN NOV. 2011

AT THAT TIME BONE SCAN AND PELVIS CT WAS NEGATIVE........ A DECISION WAS MADE
TO START IMRT + ADT IN JAN 2012 .... ( 40 TREATMENTS )

SIX MONTHS FOLLOWING IMRT + ADT ... PSA WAS NON-DETECTABLE SEPT. 2012

HOWEVER, STARTING IN APR 2013 THE PSA STARTED TO INCREASE FROM .07
TO 14.0 IN AUG 2014, ALONG WITH THE TESTOSTERONE FROM 187 TO 346 IN THE
SAME TIME FRAME....

THIS ALL SEEMED TO SURPRISE BOTH THE UROLOGY ONCOLOGIST AND THE RADIATION
ONCOLOGIST .... THEY BOTH THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO CURE ME..

BUT NOT ME ..... FOLLOWING SURGERY I HAD USED THE CAPRA SCORE, KATTAN
AND SLOAN-KETTERING NOMOGRAMS..... WHICH SHOWED I ONLY HAD ABOUT A 25 % CHANCE
OF BEING CANCER FREE IN FIVE YEARS..... RIGHT ON SCHEDULE!!!!!!!

NOW ON AUG 06, 2014 I WAS GIVEN 6 MONTHS TO LIVE..... REFERRED TO THE ONCOLOGY
DEPT. AT THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH HUNTSMAN CANCER CLINIC WITH
ADVANCED PROSTATE CANCER. AND RESTARTED ADT WITH LUPRON AND CASODEX.

I SEEMED TO BE HORMONE SENSITIVE FOR ABOUT 4 TO 5 MONTHS UNTIL JAN 2015.....
THEN THE PSA BEGAN TO INCREASE FROM .48 TO 5.8 IN MAY OF 2015......

THE DECISION WAS MADE TO START CHEMOTHERAPY ( ZYTIGA ) 21 MAY 2015.....

MORE TO COME ! ! ! ! ! !
       
04.07.2015 6.30 17.06.15
I HAVE BEEN ON CHEMO FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS... HAVE NOT SEEN ANY REDUCTION IN THE PSA
IN THE LAST TWO LABS.. I HAVE LABS DUE AROUND THE 10 OF JULY.. I HOPE FOR SOME BETTER
RESULTS.... MY HAVE TO RE-EVALUATE THE BENEFITS OF CHEMO.....
       
04.08.2015 4.60 04.08.15
AT THE HUNTSMAN CANCER CLINIC TODAY..... FINALLY A TURN AROUND
IN THE PSA AFTER TWO MONTHS ON ZYTIGA... WILL HAVE A TALK WITH
THE DOCTOR ABOUT ALL LABS... ESPECIALLY THE NEW TEST CIRCULATING
TUMOR CELL COUNT,,,, AND SOME HIP MUSCLE SPASMS
       
01.09.2015 3.00 01.09.15
