I was diagnosed with metastatic PC in Aug. 2010. In Nov 2011 it became castration resistant PC. After discussion of the alternatives, and a fight with my insurance company I opted to go with Provenge, finishing the course in early Jan. My oncologist, a person I hold in high esteem, wants to follow PSAs for three months, and get a bone scan in the third month to see if there is any progression in the metastases.
I can not find anything as far as how the effectiveness of the Provenge should be monitored, or when to decide if it is time to move on to something else. For others out there who have had or may get Provenge how is your progress going to be monitored?
