I will be 62 this fall. and I was diagnosed at 52. I had a prosectomy followed with radiation. Then I had 6 rounds of chemo followed by Zytiga and prednisone for almost 4 years. After that stopped working they put me on Xtandi which didn't work too good, it sort of stabilized my PSA though it started rising after 3 months. Then came 13 rounds of Jevtana chemotherapy. Every 3 weeks from May of 22 until February of 23. PSA was stable but it slowly started to rise. I'm now on Pluvicto. I have just completed my 2nd round of 6 at 6 weeks apart. Too soon to tell if is working. During these years my PSA has been between .20 and never above 3.5 during all of these treatments. I'm on xgeva shots for my bone mets on my rib cage, middle spine and on the back of my neck. The 2 on my back were fractures which have healed nicely. Almost no pain. I get Lupron injections every six months. All I can say is that everyone is different. I have a good sense of humor and just go on like nothing has happened. Fatigue is the biggest hurdle and I can deal with that. They told me at the beginning that they were going to throw everything but the kitchen sink at me in the beginning and they weren't kidding. Hope this helps and good luck!

Where are you being treated? I'm going to Phelps Hospital in Tarrytown NY. I got a second opinion at Memorial Sloan Kettering in White Plains NY and that doctor agreed with the treatment my doctor is giving me. He was also cool and said I could book appointments with him anytime if I had questions even though he's not the one who's actively treating me.

If you don't mind my asking' what was your' PSA at time of diagnosis? Best wishes for continued future success.
