my husband had 8 chemotherapy treatments but his PSA went up to 201 and he was put back on Casodex(50mg.) which he took before chemo and it didn't work so why was he put on it again?

I placed this same comment in the kateybird thread

Discuss the treatment with your doctor. Patients who receive chemotherapy are generally believed to be non-responsive to hormones already. There is emerging evidence however, that there may be hormonal treatments that can be given after chemotherapy. The medication however is not Casodex but is Abiraterone and this particular drug seems to be more efficient in its capability of targeting the hormonal axis than drugs like Casodex.
