2nd Monitoring visit

Marshall went to the University today for his second followup "monitoring" visit since starting the Zytiga.  (I had to stay home because his cancer medications were arriving today and I had to be here to sign for them.)

All of the lab work came back good and he has not been suffering any side effects to speak of.  Still no pain.  Such good news.

But the best news of all is that today's tests showed that his PSA has come down from 31.06 to 10.23.  The oncologist always tells us that the key thing to go by is how Marshall feels and as long as Marshall feels good we should not get too wrapped up with tracking the PSA, and also that the PSA can bounce around a little on this drug.  But still, coming down to 10.23 is something to rejoice about!
