At this juncture I am pleased to report that after being on xtandi for only three weeks my PSA has dropped back to .11.The predominant side effect of fatigue has materialized as expected. In my case this means after two hours of tennis doubles three days a week I tend to fall asleep in the evenings while attempting to catch up on my reading or watching a sporting event on TV. Short story abbreviated to the max, I am satisfied with my results thus far. A brief but pertinent Patient Portal exchange with Dr. Myers appears below:
Assuming xtandi proves effective as indicated by my monthly blood draws, how long do you expect this medication to control the progression of my PCa?
IT MIGHT WORK FOR YEARS OR AS SHORT AS 6 MONTHS
