    has anyone had Zytiga after Taxotere chemo treatments ? Results?

    Had Prostatetectomy in Nov.2003 ; 37 Radiation treatments in Nov./Dec 2004 and started Lupron Therapy in dec,2005. All well ? until 3 months ago,when abdominal pain started.My GP (not Oncologist) finally tested and tested until ......advanced metastic prostate cancer in abdomin ;L1 L2
    in spine and in bone marrow. 5 chemo treatments later we will do more test to see what's happening and Zytiga may be in my future. I am told this situation is very rare,but hope someone has/ had same combination and was successful in treating same.

      Hi Fan43,

      I am still seeking someone who can share some experience. As you know, we are a growing network and we've been adding a lot of new people touched by prostate cancer.

      In the meantime, I found this article about Zytiga and thought you might be interested:


      I hope this helps!

      Mine is a little different - it's all over the place on my bones have been on Zoladex for 6 months now and docs are suggesting next may be Provenge or a clinical trial. I read the article on Zytiga that Karen mentioned seems they are trying lots but still no thing they're calling a cure.

      I've gone through the Taxotere but not Zytiga. Now on trial meds but MichaelV has been on Zytiga for quite some time but not Taxotere. You may wish to compare notes.

      Keep it positive and smile :)

      My husband has had both of those drugs. Taxitere worked for a while. Zytiga, not at all. But, everyone is different. Many do well on that one. I pray it will work for you since it is oral. Much easier, and n ot so time consuming
