    Comment from: 65-74 Female on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: October 01

    I was very pleased with the Provenge treatment. Just sat in a chair for a few hours while my blood was taken and came back a few days later to receive Provenge via an IV, again sitting in a chair for a 2 or 3 hours. Had to repeat 2 more times for full course of treatment. I felt like I had a mild cold for a few hours but otherwise experienced no other side affects. So far it has been 8 months since I have received provenge and I am feeling better than I did before. I highly recommend this compared to any other treatment in late stage prostate cancer.
