Days 8, 9 and 10 of Zytiga/Prednisone

Tuesday (3/19), Wednesday (3/20) and Thursday (3/21) -- all pain free and active.

On Tuesday, March 26, we go back up to Cancer Center for bloodwork to test for any side effects to liver, kidneys, etc. This bloodwork will need to be done every two weeks as long as he is on Zytiga. They won't do a PSA test until early April because our oncologist says that doing PSA tests too close together is like "chasing your tail."

But we are told that with this drug we should not be concerned if the PSA rises before it goes down. The important thing is how the patient is feeling.
