Customer Question
I am a 68...

I am a 68 year old male with metastatic prostate cancer. I was diagnosed 32 months ago and am on Lupron, Xtandi, and Zometa. The Xtandi seems to be helping a lot. I've been on it going on 4 months. PSA is about 12 last couple months, down from around 200. I had a tough period around beginning of September 2017. Was hospitalized for left calf blood clot and high kidney enzymes. Stents were placed on ureters bilaterally. Now at 6 months they were exchanged 10 days ago. My issue is a lot of blood in urine, seems to be increasing. Notice at night and more and more in daytime. Saw Urologist Wednesday and told him about it. I said that I didn't want another invasive procedure but it concerned me. He agreed that he didn't want to do another Cytoscopy an told me that it should resolve, that it could be expected as there was a lot of "manipulation" and therefore time was needed for it to heal. Since my visit Wednesday things are looking worse not better. Should I just take it easy and be patient or seek more help?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you used Xtandi or anything similar before?

No. Not Xtandi

Doctor's Assistant: Have you used anything besides Xtandi for this?

Do you mean for metastatic disease?

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Had a kidney stone I passed about 4 years ago. May have some in kidneys now

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
