    There are also subtypes listed on this page to narrow down the type of cancer to match your dx. Also, if you can take a few minutes and fill in some details of your journey so far, it will help others as they try to answer questions for you, it also helps others as they search through the database to find someone like themselves. Confirming your email will allow you to receive updates and notices from the site when someone answers your questions or writes on your wall.

      I recently completed 6 monthly treatments with Xofigo and found it to be a nice break from the hot flashes and night sweats that accompany hormone treatments. Some men can’t handle all six treatments because their bloodwork dips to dangerously low levels; usually those men have already been through chemotherapy though. One gets an IV started, a bag of saline, a slow injection of Xofigo into the line, and another bag of saline before you get to leave. It’s all over in three hours. My bones didn’t ache too much more than they already did. My highly aggressive cancer did progress while on this drug, but the existing areas didn’t grow larger.
