    One vertebra in spine overtaken with hormone resistant prostate cancer. Anyone care to share from their experience comes after radiation?

    We have been told the vertebra will always be fragile and that we can't know if this will stop the cancer in the spine. The hormone therapy has greatly reduced the other tumors, however. Looking for other experiences like this.

      I had Sumarium as a radiation treatment - mine was too spread out to use direct beam. I never had any real problems with the treatment or pain for approximately 6 to 7 months after the treatment when it restarted we did chemo (Docetaxel) After that when the pain returned I went on the trial I'm currently on and have been pain free after the 5th day of Cabozantinib. Guess my 2 cents is that it works but is not premanent.

      Keep it positive and smile :)
