    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    About my dad: His PSA went up to 70 in december after receiving ketoconazole for two months. Doctor said he had to continue with ketoconazole for at least one month more. In January he repeated PSA and it went up to 109, then he started a radio therapy in L1 wich was one of the three points where he had mets. Now PSA went down to 94 (Doctor says that it is going to reduce more in 50 days after radio), but scans showed three new mets in spine (Little and no symptons by now, but they are there...) and one in the left leg (Femur) and difficulties to pee (He wakes up a lot at night and is tired because that. This is his biggest problem). Prostate weight is almost 200 grams. Doctor is wondering to indicate treatment with docetaxel now.
