    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have been on Zytiga for 22 months now and my pea is still undetectable. My M.O. Refers to the drug as chemotherapy but I am not sure I agree with his position on the matter. It has been easy to take and has had a minimal impact on my life but a huge impact on the cancer.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
