I’m home now! It’s wonderful. My thanks to all who sent positive vibes or a prayer
I’ve been in rehab about a week. Progress is slow, but encouraging. My left leg has significantly more movement, but still no load bearing ability. My right leg remains quite weak. My spirits are very good. My wife is keeping me well fed, and the physical therapy staff is great.
Rubraca (rucaparib), Clovis Oncology‘s oral PARP inhibitor, shrank tumors in 44% of metastatic hormone-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients with BRCA mutations included in the Phase 2 TRITON2 clinical trial. The treatment, which is already approved for ovarian cancer, also reduced PSA levels — a biomarker of prostate cancer — in 51.1% of patients with BRCA mutations.
Sorry for the long delay on an update, but I wanted WordPress to push a new version of the app out so hopefully everyone can read without a problem.
I’m still in the hospital, just finished treatment 6 of 12. Going stir crazy, but thankfully I get to move thru the hospital for the treatments, so it’s not 100% of my time in the room. After the treatments I go to a rehab hospital for two weeks.
My wife, Lisa is a lifesaver. The food here is terrible beyond bad. She’s keeping me well fed and cared for.
The hospital staff is great, couldn’t ask for better.
My movement in my left leg is encouraging, but not great. My right leg is mostly twitches, but some movement. No prognosis on how long it will take to regain whatever I can regain.
I remain in pretty good spirits. I know rehab is going to be tough, but I’m ready for it.
The previous post of Big Changes failed to load correctly on some people’s machines. It was coming out as black text on a black background. The post has been updated and should display correctly now.
As I write this, I’m in the hospital with partial paralysis of both legs. The paralysis is severe enough that I can’t walk or get around with a walker.
Associated with the new residence in Florida is a new set of doctors. My oncologist back in Texas didn’t believe there was value in trying Zytiga after Xtandi failed. The oncologist here, actually two oncologists, think there might be some gain giving it a try. So today I start taking Zytiga. I hope the side effects are mild. I’m ready for life to be on the easier side.
