It sounds like you are doing well, yes I know the effects of Lupron very well. I am taking the RSO every evening in the hope it supports the Lupron and keeps me stable really I would be happy with that. I did stay away from chemo, radiation and surgery. I chose FLA because in my mind it was the least invasive. I hope things work out for you however after radiation I don't believe FLA is an option for you however the RSO would be a very good option.to support what you are doing. Lots of info on the internet. Best wishes for you!

@semeon and others.. Unlike many other cannabis oils, Rick Simpson Oil is high in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main psychoactive chemical in marijuana. THC is the chemical in marijuana that provides the "high."
Online reports say Simpson is a Canadian engineer and cannabis activist. After a bad fall, he found that marijuana helped lessen his dizziness and other symptoms. Later, when he developed basal cell skin cancers on his arm, Simpson used cannabis oil as a treatment. As the reports go, his skin cancers went away.
RSO is an oil made by washing cannabis buds with a solvent, such as pure light naphtha, and then boiling off the solvent leaving behind the oil.
RSO is not a branded product. That means there's no one "Rick Simpson Oil" for sale. On his website, Simpson explains how to make his namesake oil. But he does not sell a version of the oil for profit.
Because RSO contains high levels of THC, it's illegal to buy in many places. But in states that have legalized marijuana -- either for personal use or for medical use -- you can find RSO at cannabis dispensaries. This from WebMD..https://www.webmd.com/cancer/rick-simpson-oil-for-cancer-overview

@semeon .. the following was the conclusion of a NIH study on FLA treatment... I was not offered or was I explained any of the alternate treatments..

"Focal therapy remains a nascent field largely comprising single center cohorts with little long-term data. Our current post-focal therapy surveillance consensus recommendations represent the synthesis of the best available evidence as well as expert opinion. Further work is necessary to define the most oncologically safe and cost-effective way of following patients after focal therapy."

Thanks Ken, that was informative for the readers. I have been using RSO now every night going on 3 years and first used when I was first diagnosed in 2014. I am taking Lupron now for about 30 months and have been using RSO all that time also. It really helps with my sleep. I sleep through the night no bathroom breaks and it softens the hot flashes although I still gave chill spells also. I am in Canada so getting RSO is not a problem. I do have a treatment guide but not sure how I would get it to you since they don’t allow emails or cell phone numbers. I guess I could just post it here if you like.
