Increase thy ability to earn —The Richest Man in Babylon READ ON FOR MORE! graduate or anyone who The Richest. Feb 22, There are several alternative cancer treatments, but one you might not have heard of is one referred.
After infusion is complete, give brisk bolus approx. The basic substances used in IVF flushes are sodium thiosulfate 5 and sodium bicarbonate. Without the bicarbonate and thiosulfate buffers patients would quickly succumb to the chemo poisons. Sodium bicarbonate, potassium chloride, and calcium chloride are used to maintain pH and electrolytes within normal values in intensive care units.
We are talking about serious medicine when we talk about sodium bicarbonate. Earlier and more frequent use of sodium bicarbonate is associated with higher early resuscitability rates and with better long-term neurological outcomes in emergency units.
Sodium bicarbonate is beneficial during CPR. Chemotherapy drugs and corticoids reduce the bone marrow production of cells. In addition, these drugs damage the integrity of the skin tegument, and of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts, facilitating the penetration of microorganisms into the host. Bicarbonate does none of this. Sodium bicarbonate lessens the development of polycystic kidney disease in rats. Chronic administration of mM sodium bicarbonate to rats inhibited cystic enlargement and prevented thesubsequent development of interstitial inflammation, chronic fibrosis, and uremia.
Cardiologists at The University of Texas found in their review of 29 anticancer agents that there is no class of cancer drug that is free of potential damage to the heart.
It is the organ that seems to be most sensitive to toxic effects of anticancer agents. Even the newest targeted therapies, designed to attack only cancer cells, can cause cardiotoxicity.
We do not have to fear bicarbonate intake. And in fact, people who live in areas of the world with high amounts of bicarbonate in their drinking waters have a striking decreased mortality rate and a decreased prevalence of disease. Sodium bicarbonate, though often used as a medicine, is unlike pharmaceutical compounds.
It is a natural non-toxic substance that does not require clinical trials for an assessment of toxicity. Spring waters contain bicarbonate ions which are coupled mainly with sodium, potassium, calcium or magnesium ions. A deficiency of bicarbonate ions in the body contributes to a range of diseases and medical conditions. Sodium bicarbonate acts as a powerful, natural and safe antifungal agent,9 which when combined with iodine, would probably cover the entire spectrum of microbial organisms.
The efficacy of sodium bicarbonate against certain bacteria and fungi 10 has been documented. Its role as a disinfectant against viruses, however, is not generally known. Simoncini came along though that the concept arose that what these doctors where unknowingly doing was cutting down the fungal fields of cancer.
Not only is it good for diaper rash it can also kick the teeth out of just about any cancer given a chance. Often few good choices often exist for treatment. A prostate cancer patient treatment choice often ends up being the least worst choice or the choice with the side effects a patient thinks he can tolerate.
Patients can sometimes be mislead about the expected side effects and results of the treatment being offered. The risk of chronic fatigue and depression is often never disclosed. Long term care consists of regular PSA testing for years. Long term care for side effects is often lacking or exploitive or ineffective. Often complaints of side effects are disregarded by nurses, doctors and sometimes referred out to other doctors.
The patient is sometimes left to figure out what to do about his side effects with the resources available to him. Long term side effects often consist of fatigue, bowel or urinary problems, sexual dysfunction, depression and other symptoms. Patients with complaints of chronic fatigue are often told to exercise, get plenty of sleep, pace yours self and eat a healthy diet; this advice is of limited help for chronic fatigue.
Often treatments for long term side effects are embarrassing, degrading, unavailable, nonexistent, costly, not effective, not offered or bothersome. Prostate cancer treatment often results in fatigue, depression, isolation and sometimes suicide. Billions of dollars are profited from ED drug and other ED products, catheters, pads and diapers, drugs for depression or pain or insomnia or incontinence, additional treatments and surgeries for side effects.
Also treatments for the multiple and bizarre side effects from hormone ADT therapy chemical castration is sometimes required. Men, ageing and elder abuse: If any man lives long enough it is very likely he will have a prostate problem, low testosterones or some form of sexual dysfunction. In my opinion modern medicine often has been exploitive, abusive and has provided substandard care for older men in general due to all of the explanation given in this text.
I believe much of the attitudes toward older Americans need improvement and they are sometimes viewed as being subhuman and exploitable by various groups and individuals. If documented cases of unnecessary surgery and radiotherapy or blind biopsies on children by doctors for profit were released, the vast majority of Americans would be outraged and this practice would quickly end. However for older men it dose not seems to be of great concern!
As defined by some or all state laws, exploitation of elderly men by overprescribing treatment for profit is a crime or an offence of various guidelines and regulations.
It is extremely unlikely any doctor will ever be prosecuted or have a medical license suspended for this common and extensively documented abuse or crime. One patient after recovering from a brain injury testified that he was repeatedly abused, slapped and hit, forced to drink boiling hot tea by multiple caregivers and sexually assaulted by one female caregiver. It is well documented that all forms abuse do occur to the aged and disabled in nursing homes and other facilities including, neglect, theft, starvation, torture, harassment, sexual assault, etc.
I personally know of an elderly lady that is living in an expensive assisted living home that has had all of her possessions radio, clothes, underwear, shoes stolen and replaced by her family several times including the sheets off of her bed, even after the sheets where marked with her name using a larger permanent marker pen.
Prostate cancer patients are at an increased risk of suicide. Almost all prostate cancer treatments usually result a high percentage of erectile dysfunction. Excluding hormone therapy, lower libido is almost never disclosed as a treatment side effect and sometimes it is completely denied as a problem. Blind biopsies can sometimes or often cause temporary or permanent ED. Often claims of prompt effective treatment for ED or other side effects if they occur after treatment are often misleading.
Statistics for ED percentages from treatment are usually quoted after treatment with Viagra, Muse or other ED treatments, therefore most statistics are very misleading. For cryotherapy, ED rates are extremely high. At these prices Lilly could consider including the bathtubs featured in its advertisements for Cialis.
Many insurance companies will not pay for ED drugs or treatment. The patent for Viagra should have already expired in the USA. Less expensive generic drugs are usually unavailable in the US.
This is further exploitation by the drug companies of men in general. Men are also exploited by counterfeit mail order ED drug sales. ED drugs are not always effective and may have side effects. Men will often not seek treatment because or these reasons.
The numbers game more exaggerations -: Some side effects may not be disclosed at all. If side effects low libido, chronic fatigue, depression, increased suicide risk, etc are not disclosed, no percentages will usually need to be quoted.
Results are often worse for a surgery option, the main difference in ED results between surgery and radiotherapy is; with surgery ED will start out bad and may or may not get better with time, however with radiotherapy ED will get worse over time. Cure rates are often quoted at the 5 years mark for most treatments. Ask your urologist or radiation oncologist for a year cure Rate. If the physician is unable to provide one, consider finding another doctor. Studies and clinical trials results, side effects percentage claims, etc can be biased.
I have read and have been given some extremely exaggerated claims mostly lies concerning cure rated, side effects, etc. In conclusion: Prostate cancer patients are sometimes elderly and exploited for profit per documented studies. A blind biopsy is unsafe and newer test methods should be used. The treatments offered have horrible side effects. Some doctors are treating patients with low risk cancer or advanced age when monitoring is often a better option. Aftercare for long term side effects is frequently ineffective, expensive, not offered, degrading or nonexistent.
Prostate cancer patients are seldom told about chronic fatigue and the true risk of side effects are usually understated. Modern medicine often fails and victimizes prostate cancer patients. If a patient has intermediate or high risk prostate cancer and dose not have advanced age he may need treatment. He should have genomic testing and look into other advanced treatments if available and genomic testing.
Also he should try and avoid hormone therapy if possible because of the multiple side effects especially if the cancer is organ confined. If laser or other advanced treatments are not available a 5 day SBRT radiation treatment may be considered In my opinion, it could be the best of the bad choices.
SBRT seems to be fast, least invasive or traumatic. ED and fatigue is still a high long term risk. Radiation with hormone therapy has a higher risk of ED and long term fatigue.
However, I now believe often prostate cancer testing and treatment could be a mistake in most men. The short version of my story: I was referred to an urologist by my family doctor after a high PSA test. Shortly after my Dr. I now believe this nurse was high because of drug abuse being common among nurses the easy access to drugs.
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer by Dr. I refused his surgery and hormone therapy recommendation because of the eminent side effects and his unprofessional nurse behavior, so Dr.
When I arrived in his office the waiting room was empty. He also had a large staff. One week after my consultation with Dr. However this nurse could not answer any of my basic questions, lacked any credibility and sounded like a used car salesmen. Most of these office visits caused me multiple problems with offices workers processing paperwork for tests, insurance forms and billing, etc.
Two of these doctors offered me an unnecessary bone scan. Two of these doctors recommended unnecessary hormone therapy ADT Therapy for my organ confined cancer. After I absolutely and utterly refused hormone therapy, both doctors admitted it probably would not help me in my final outcome because of the computer estimate run on me with my PSA, biopsy report, etc.
I wasted 2 more days verifying it was the correct MRI of me and not some other prostate patient MRI before my treatment could start. I did receive treatment from Dr.
I did have a relatively fast and completely noninvasive treatment SBRT , resulting in months of fatigue, a large PSA bounce 18 mothers later and some other short term side effects. I also no longer trust modern medicine, doctors, nurses, etc.
Modern medicine seems to be more of a gamble then a science. I have wasted hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars. I feel modern medicine has abused and failed me due to the lack of guidelines and regulation, still approved obsolete technology, better unapproved treatments, exploitation, greed, apathy and incompetence. I was never offered Genomic testing. I also believe I should have had no PSA testing or treatment. If I could do it over again, I would also consider no PSA testing and treatment or traveling for advanced treatments from a competent provider if practical and available.
I believe if I did take the two doctors recommendations and received unnecessary hormone therapy in addition to the radiotherapy my quality of life QOL would have been severely impacted for years or permanently and could possibly have resulting in my early death. I did seem to have a lot of bad luck in picking providers or is this just the new standard in medical care?
I was harmed physically and verbally by Dr. I did also have numerous other billing and paperwork problems probably due to mistakes and apathy.
A few of the office staff were incapable of completing some very simple tasks like filling out lab work request or insurance forms. I have also observed several medical facilities do not require workers to wear name tags and when asked for a name most will give a first name only; this may also be a factor in health care workers not acting in an ethical manner. It seems that this prostate cancer nightmare maze was intended for maximum physical, psychological, financial harm and to be of questionable benefit.
My prostate cancer experience has been one of the worst events that has happened to me in my lifetime and I specifically blame modern medicine for not protecting patients from predatory doctors, substandard technology and a lack of regulations that would protect patients. My treatment choice: Hormone therapy would not have been an effective treatment for me. Surgery and Brachytherapy are to invasive. Surgery has an imminent danger of incontinence and ED. A 9 week EBRT radiotherapy was just to long and laborious.
Because castration orchiectomy , ADT hormone therapy chemical castration , LDR Brachytherapy and blind biopsies are what I consider Frankenstein medicine strange, bizarre, brutal, twisted, degrading or a perverted nightmare I would avoid all of them.
Unfortunately, I was deceived and misguided into having a blind biopsy. I do not believe other conventional treatments like radiotherapy are good or great choices either, just not as bad and acceptable at that time for me. I also had no advanced treatment options available to me. As I have stated above, If I could do it over again I would also consider either no PSA testing and treatment or traveling for advanced treatments from a competent provider if practical and available.
I am now sure I made the wrong choice by receiving a conventional treatment. With prostate cancer, the testing or treatment is often worse then the disease.
I am not implying anyone should make the same choices as I did. I am only giving the motives for my decisions. I was also the victim of profit motivated and substandard providers. I am now sure prostate cancer testing and treatment is all smoke and mirrors. When asked: With some exceptions I now believe this to be mostly true. Always protect yourself: It should not be up to a patient to protect himself or herself from harm from doctors, however the new standard in medical care now seems to be substandard.
If you are concerned about misuse or privacy issues, refuse to fill out EPIC questioners and limit the information given to relevant information only. If you have a high PSA or prostate cancer, educate yourself. A patient should be extremely skeptical if exaggerated claims are made about minimal long term side effects from conventional treatments or blind biopsies.
Bring someone educated or astute with you to your consultations and appointments. Insist on Genomic testing if you have prostate cancer. Avoid doctors that are mostly profit motivated. Do not submit to a prostate blind biopsy if other options are available.
Get a second or third opinion if you are being offered treatment with low risk prostate cancer. Learn about all your treatment options, testing and side effects. Verify everything you are told. Always ask the name of the person assisting you. If they refuse the request for a name leave immediately you may or may not be in extreme danger.
Be very cautious if you are ever refused a copy of your records; demand a copy of your records and a reason for any denial and seek other advice. Get a copy and keep a file of your test results, biopsy report-Gleason score, PSA, MRI report, treatment plan, bills, insurance payouts, etc.
Carefully monitor your PSA. Expect a temporary increase for weeks or months in PSA after some procedures. Verify the accuracy of paperwork. If treatment is necessary talk to your doctor in advance about side effect management, chronic fatigue, ED, etc.
Doctors that provide treatments often have computer software to predict the outcome using test results and different treatment options. Ask to see your computer predicted cure rate outcome with your treatment options if available. This may give you some insight to your options, cure rate and also to avoid overtreatment. For help contact a good prostate cancer support group without a conflict of interest. What are the motives of your providers, place them in order that you observe at your doctors office: This exercise may give you some insight into the care you may receive.
A medical holocaust: Multiple studies have verified more deaths caused from prostate cancer testing and treatment then from prostate cancer itself.
Medical mistakes are the third leading cause of deaths in the USA over , deaths a year, over one million deaths in 4 years more then suicide, firearms and motor vehicle accidents combined.
These statistics do not include people that have had there lives destroyed by modern medicine or a reduction in QOL quality of life. Strict guidelines for prostate cancer testing and treatment need to be created and enforced because of the extensive and documented abuses of prostate cancer patients: Blind biopsies should be banned. Strict standards and gridlines for testing and treatment need to be created. Full mandatory industry standard disclosure forms need to be created for tests and treatment to include realistic risk factor disclosure.
Newer testing and treatments need to be created and approved. Dignity, privacy and confidentiality need to be standardized and enforced in addition to the HIPAA laws. Aftercare needs to be available, standardized and regulated. The cost for drugs needs to be regulated to end financial exploitation by drug companies.
Medical workers should be identifiable and be required to wear name tags with first, last names and job title. Genomic or genetic testing should be required before any patient is sent for treatment, to avoid overtreatment and insure the correct treatment. A standardized education book or PDF document needs to be created and distributed to all high PSA and prostate cancer patients. It is unlikely any of the above recommendations will be implemented unless prostate cancer affected a larger percent of the population or enough prominent people are affected.
Prostate cancer patients must protect themselves as the only alternative! The above text may probably anger and upset some people for various reasons. The intent of this document is not to imply all doctors are dishonest or to condemn all medical providers. The intent is to educate men and prostate cancer patients of the consequences and dangers that may await them so they can take appropriate action and to inform patients of real world, typical or worst case scenarios.
I have also tried to include most scenarios a prostate cancer patient should be cautious of. Would some health care providers harm a patient for profit or by accident or some other reason?
Yes, absolutely! I have also had excellent doctors and nurses, however this may not protect you from the bad ones. Are some other doctors and nurses exceptional? Differences in opinion, variations in semantics do not invalidate this document or its intent. I have no conflict of interest.

Had I known before I went through surgery what life would be like now I would have taken my chances on not having treatment.
Even at 58 years old I would have rather had a few quality years than the post surgery results of incontinance ED and depression for the past 2 years. Again thanks. The tumor had a Gleason Score of 8, and the cells were highly undefererentiated, thus they did not PSA to any great degree. Surgery was ruled out because the cancer had broken through capsule, and invaded part of bladder and urethra.
He was started on Lupron and Casodex followed up by 42 treatments of external beam radiation. He tolerated everything very well. Once a year we would see his radiologist for DRE and review. Every four months we would go for his blood work and Lupron shot, and every other visit we would meet with his oncologist. My husband would have bone density testing done every two years. Our life was going along well; my husband is 16 years out from his initial diagnosis.
Then we noticed subtle changes at the medical center: Finally, our oncologist, with whom we have a great relationship, told us he was now only seeing breast cancer patients. So he recommended another doctor who supposedly was a prostate specialist. We met with the new Dr.
No collaboration— no personality—no rapport with us. We are very anxious now because, after all these years, this new guy wants to upset our path of survival. Please tell us what we can do, and your opinion. Treated with hormone therapy last week. I am 54 years old and had my prostate removed in late December PSA was and went up to within a short time.
Followed up the surgery I had 40 separate days of radiation to make sure they got everything. Additionally, I received Lupron shot before surgery and six months later.
I am tired of legs and joints and tendons aching. Also, the hot flashes are awful. Are these Lupron side effects going the end when I stop doing Lupron? Current PSA is below. So I am questioning the value of continuing Lupron given the side effects, especially since the cancer seems to become resistant to Lupron.
What else could I take that will not have the side effects? I appreciate any thoughts people might have. I had prostate removed in Recurrence in late resulting in 37 radiation treatments.
Recurrence in , PSA tripling and ct scan showed 14 nodules in lungs. Started Lupron and knocked PSA down rapidly. Get my Lupron injection every 3 months and I find great peace in prayer. I think it works really well with my treatment. God Bless you all! Hi, I am ghazaleh to write this message to you about my father problem.
Actually my father has prostate cancer which me metastasize to his bones and his lymph. He had prostate cancer from 15 years ago, and he had two time surgery. In the last surgery which was about 6 years ago his Dr was cleaned all his Testicle.
After that his cancer metastasis to his bones but his dr controlled this by Zometa injection. From 2 years ago he used Flonatax tablet every day and was injected Diferelin every 3 mounts and his PSA was about 6 and sometimes was 5. Unfortunately, 5 mounts ago his PSA was about 7 and the next mounts became 8. In this time his dr recommended some injection which name is Decapeptid flutamide.
For 5 mounts my father used this injection and after that his PSA result was His Dr told us this treatment is not useful for my father and for one month he should not use anything and after that your father should be go for Chemotherapy.
But I want to know is it another better treatment for my father now? If there is, I really would like to take my father to your clinic for his treatment. My father age 72 was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in November with Gleason number 8 and PSA around His bone scan showed the metastasis to bones, ribs and pelvic. He was treated immediately for hie testicle removal and was put on few drugs and one injection to be given once a month.
Till june his PSA was under control but is increasing now and has increased from 1. What is the further course of treatment in this case.
Kindly send suggestions on my mail. Hi my grandfather was diagnosed of prostate cancer 10 years backin year and doctors decided to remove testes. Psa came to normal range gradually when it increased he was suggested to take calutide 50 which kept it in control. However,now after 10 years of the surgery calutide 50 failed to control the psa.
He was asked to start Honvan. But honvan is also not able to reduce the PSA. Currently his psa has reached 63 with regional lymphnodal spread and retroperitonel lymphnodal metastases. He also has an enlarged prostate. Please suggest what options do we have? Your article is amazing help to patients that has been in 5 different story dr. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in when I was 51 years old.
My psa was I had surgery and it had spread to one lymph node. My psa started to rise after surgery so I was put on Lupron in Oct. At that time I was told I had 2 to 5 years to live. That was 16 years ago and I am still on it. In my psa started to rise slowly and my last psa count was 1. In I had a ct scan and a bone scan and both were negative. Naturally I still worry every time I have a psa test. Do I still have to worry after all this time?
Dear friends, Before my retirement from Govt. During various tests at the Hospital,one report said I am at initial stage, the second report of the same hospital said I am at last stage.
My treating Doctor was astonished to see the difference to which I reacted with a smiling face to my Doctor that I am least worried,you Doctor,please go for may surgical operation, lets it will be first stage or last stage of cancer,it will not effect my age,which is already decided by my SatguruGod, I am fully satisfied.
The Death is not related only with this disease,there are so many other reasons set out by God other than a disease. I am not afraid of it,my Doctor was happy to see my faith in GodsWill.. So I was surgical operated and set on harmonal therapy with bicalutamide mg by my Doctor with my psa 0. My doctor also got suspicious about gradually increasing my psa, and he then prescribed psa checks after 3 months than 6 months.
So,I have suggestions to use prescribed dosages by the Doctor regularly rather decreasing it by own due to side effects,we are to bear these as per our past Karmas. I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, stage 1 with a Gleason score of 8, psa of I have no symptoms before my biopsy, but after the biopsy, I go to the bathroom to urinate more often, about x. My cat and whole body scan were negative.
This, I believe, is the best weapon against cancer. My husband was diagnosed with stage4 prostate cancer. It spread to his pelvic bone.
On hormone therapy for nearly a year. But in January of this year cancer doc decided to try chemo. My husband got one round of chemo and ended up in ICU with severe brain swelling and nearly lost his life. Like 1 in a million.
With that being said…It has been a down hill battle ever since. He now has an autoimmune disease called NMO. Again I in thousand. You tell me what caused this.
One day after administering chemo he nearly died. Before this he was living somewhat of a normal life. Now he can barely walk,falls,losing his vision,confused,depressed,headaches,brain biopsy that shows lessions that go along with the disease.
Could go on. My heart is broken. Yet his psa is normal. At least one thing is good. Prayers to all of you. His case is not the norm. Since I have used Lupron and Casodex very intermittently two to six months at a time.
This treatment immediately drives PSA and Testosterone to near zero. But I have suffered serious depression and anxiety since And I have tried at least ten of the traditional antidepressants with no help at all. I have discovered on my own that my only relief comes from hydrocodone, with careful doctor and wife supervision.

I do not know what I would have done if I had not discovered the hydrocodone symptom relief. I am currently two months after a second 7. With all my experience, I should know this but how long will the side effects of my last 7. I do not think they ever entirely go away but at some point I hope very soon my depression will become more manageable. What is the half life or side effect duration of Lupron when taken in one month 7.
I might add, that hormone therapy remains very effective in immediately reducing my testosterone and PSA to an effective zero , but over the past six years, my PSA return rate has increased to where my PSA no doubles every month during months of no hormone treatment.
My psa level was 4 in , 5. The antibiotics probably lowered the psa to 4. I still waited. In psa was up to 5,8 and another biopsy confirmed it was time for a treatment. Hormone therapy for 18 months,22 external beam radiation treatments and brachytherapy in one treatement.
The hormone shots stop my libido so sex is of no interest I have a different outlook Watchful waiting was fine with me. This is a superb article, thank you. The care was exceptional and, a year out of treatment, my prognosis is good and I am doing my part with nutrition and exercise. My treatment called for Lupron two months prior, the two months during proton treatment, and two months post-treatment.
The proton treatment was painless and I had virtually no side-effects from this. Six months after the last Lupron shot timed-out my T tested at , the low end of normal.
In short, the drug performs its primary intended function, but the side-effects are pervasive and long-lasting. This appears to be the case as well with women who take this in treatment for endometriosis.
I would recommend that anyone taking this type of drug have lab work done every three months, including RBC, liver and cholesterol checks. Preferable, the patient should be under the care of a good endocrinologist. My husband has prostate cancer. He has been on hormone therapy for almost a year. He is 78 years old. His Gleason Score was 8 when started on the treatment. He was told that the cells may have spread.

So far his only side effect has been hot flashes. He works every day and complains some about back aches. What can we expect as far as pain? Is there something else he can do? Thank you for sharing some of your extensive knowledge with us on prostate cancer. My dad has been on hormone therapy for a year and a half. His PSA has shot up to Dad has had 2 bouts of radiotherapy the second was not effective. My sisters and I are bracing ourselves for a possible downward spiral.
Please can you give me some insight into the most probable and realistic outcome at this late stage based on your experience with other patients at this stage? He will be meeting with his consultant tomorrow regarding pain management. Kind regards. Good information…fyi course of treatment age 64 Original 3.?
Go Gators…University of Fla Meds.. I am 82 years old. Due to my high PSA Level i. I also started to take that from yesterday. Please help me….. Thanks Suman Majumder. Me again! PSA fell to 2 ng — So I took a 2 month holiday and it shot back to 5. Reading on the topic, I learned for the first time that one should not have sex 3 days ahead of PSA reading.
I was told one day…and in truth I had sex 2 days ahead of the shot. I miss my hormones when losing short-term memory, going blank while doing a large project like the current one a refugee town for 20, people in Canada. Mostly it screws up my authority when dealing with other engineers and architects.
BTW, last time I checked my testosterone serum was , most probably why the uro wanted me back on Lupron. Just fishing for advice on all this but also to suggest to you fine people to look for a fix for memory loss and sudden weaknesses. So I prepared this with 3 weeks of Casodex that had many side effects. I was traveling abroad and the pills ran out 3 days ago.
I will be back home for the injection Friday. A week without Casodex, can this still disable the Lupron testosterone boost? BTW, the last month of the double treatment were great with their absence of side effects. Why is it that Casodex alone is so problematic this time? Memory loss, extreme weakness episodes, balance etc…. I have prostate cancer cells in one small area on one side of the prostate. My PSA was 1.
My Gleason was a 4 plus 3 only in this one small area. All cancer confined to the prostate gland. I took Zoladex prior to my 44 treatments with radiation and have had a total of 3 injections with the doctor wanting me to do 5 more.
After radiation my PSA is. I want to stop the Zoladex because of the side effects that I am experiencing. Would like to continue PSA testing to monitor any possible cancer return.
My question is can I safely forego any additional Zoladex? My age is This is very informative! Thank you. My husband is 72, had a full colectomy in and now has j-pouch; PSA was 7. Weight of prostate is 41 grams. MRI reveals the tumor is on one side and wait and watch is off the table. Surgery is very challenging because of j-pouch and adhesions; he had 3 incidents of obstructions that resulted in surgery. They are considering Lupron to shrink the tumor so they can create more space between the prostate and the tumor.
Your thoughts? My brother has been through chemo 3 times, but this time his condition was getting worse that I was afraid it will kill him. When a friend of mine directed me to Dr Al-Jamali at: It is multilobular but encapsulated.
The capsule is apparently not breached on MRI and biopsy. I am 59 and there is no node or bone spread from bone scan. The biopsy was done about a month ago. I am waiting for a radical prostatectomy using robotics in 4 weeks. I have been put on bicalutamide in the meantime. My relative has local advanced prostate CA, spread out to bladder G score was 9.
He is on Lupron. Doctor said, he only can have 9 month Lupron therapy, stopped Casodex. What he should to do. Radiation therapy? I want to know that prostate ca with bone metastases which Inj we prefer Inj Xgeva or Inj Zometa Please reply me on my email id Thanks. It is my hopes that I can get off of the hormones.
What happens when Hormone Therapy stops in controlling the prostate cancer and it advances to soft tissues and other parts of body. How dangerous it becomes as Hormonal Therapy helped in controlling the same for almost four years, but now doctor has to start with Chemotherapy.
How worse this situation is and how successful chemo is to kill the cancer cells in the case of metastases. I just finised 9 weeks of radiation treatment for prostate cancer. I also had hormone therapy and it caused terrible almost debiliting hot flahes.
Had I known they would have been this bad, I would have opted out. In continuation with my above comment could any body guess the survival time and rate in these cases? My dad has suffering same problem like you. Dr said to do hormone therapy. But I need to educate myself on this before I go for him hormone therapy.
Could you please tell me your plan of treatment. I had PSA of Orchiectomy was done on 11th May, I was given 50mg Bicalutamie twice. My PSA after 6 weeks was 1. Is right as many doctors say it should be less than 1? After 3 months it was 2.
Sodium Bicarbonate Rich Mans Poor Mans Cancer Treatment…
I had my testosterone tested it I am asked to increase the dose of Bicalutamide to 3 time with 50mg each time. Will it help? Could any body help how to go for my treatment? Likely affected sites are spinous process of right scapula, right side of body of D4 vertebra-likely degenerative osteophyte, right ala of sacrum, and left acetabulum. I have no other health problem other than some pain in the hips. Any comment may be sent to my email. And got rid of it, was good for 2 years , now he has prostate metastasis to spine, had medical cement into L12 for compound fractures.
