Louis H and Korrine live in Kansas, USA. He was 57 when he was diagnosed in September, 2015. His initial PSA was 154.00 ng/ml, his Gleason Score was 8, and he was staged T4. His choice of treatment was ADT-Androgen Deprivation (Hormone) (ADT2). Here is his story.

Hi, diagnosed with prostate cancer that has spread to the hip and lower back. I was put on Lupron for about six months, without affecting my PSA level at all. In fact my PSA level increased. My doctor now has put me on a six month treatment of Xofigo along with starting Xtandi. My first treatment of Xofigo went well, other than side effects (vomiting, nausea, diarrhea). I must admit that my bone pain that I have been suffering at night has really started to subside. Now comes the job of lowering my PSA levels. Tried Zytiga for a week until DR. pulled me off due to blood work showing adverse reaction to Zytiga. So now I'm about to start on Xtandi once I get the blessings from my insurance company. I'm about to start my second treatment of Xofigo next week. I will update my progress on this site as things change. It is sure a nice feeling typing this message. God Bless... Louis

Today was good news from my Dr. After my first infusion of Xofigo my PSA has dropped from 754 down to 135 in one month. And that is not including not starting on Xtandi yet. Feel good!!! Will continue my progress here as things change. God bless..... Louis

Hi, just finished my second treatment of Xofigo with reduced side effects. Feeling good, won't have my blood work done again for another 2 to 3 weeks including PSA level. Will continue to update my status here as things change. GOD Bless...Louis

Hi, just finished my 3rd treatment of Xofigo. My PSA has increased by 50 since my last entry.

Still a lot lower than 785 two months ago. Not sure about getting started on Xtandi since I have read a lot of dangerous side effects. Will continue to update as things change.... GOD Bless.

Hi, just finished my fourth treatment of Xofigo. My PSA level is starting to go up now at 235.

Starting on Xtandi, still on Lupron and Xgeva for bone strength. No bone pain compared to prior to starting on Xofigo. Will continue to update as things change. GOD Bless..... Louis
