Just returned from meeting with my onco tonight. I feel much more positive. Latest PSA has dropped to 2.06 from 4.87 in 2 weeks. He wants this to continue downwards and stay there. Abiraterone is working for the moment!!!
the plan for the moment is just the Abiraterone with the continued Prostap. He did say there are several other things to turn to if/when that fails so I am feeling much more positive!!!
Hi Richard, Glad to hear your oncologist is on top of things and that you are feeling more positive. Keep fighting! Best wishes,
I really think he is - which is very useful as I am now MCRPc. Incedently I also went for a Foundation Liquid Biopsy earlier in the month so it will be interesting to see what my genomic profile is.
I had to look this liquid biopsy up! Sounds interesting and if it can help you find more targeted treatment then all the better.
If you are ok with it let me know how you get on.
It is genomic profiling which I am sure you do know about! Itidentifies gene mutation/hereditary mutation (Angelina Jolie did it) and picks up known mutation gene mutations like BRCA1 & 2.
