I'm currently on Lupron;  however, it appears to be declining in effectiveness, with my PSA increasing over the last year.  I'm testing every two months and currently at 1.4, the previous tests were .8, .5, .1 respectively.  I've discussed when to progress to either Xtandi or Ztiga with both my urologist and hematologist/oncologist.  They have both suggested that when the PSA reaches 5.0+, scans should be done and treatment progression should probably begin.

I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts as to whether I may be waiting too long to progress to Xtandi or Ztiga.
