Alcohol and Risk of Reoccurence
I've had a couple reoccurrences and recently underwent spot radiation treatment with Dr. Davis at Mayo (under Dr. Kwon's care plan). My diet is generally good with lots of fruits, veggies, gains, nuts, seeds, etc. I eat meat/dairy about once a week. I also exercise for 45 minutes or more each day. I'm on ADT, but I think the diet and exercise allows me to feel great each day.
I feel my biggest shortfall is that I like a martini with dinner 1-2 times a week, plus a few glasses of wine. I try to limit drinking to no more than three nights a week. While studies vary and multiple doctors have told me that alcohol does not present a risk for prostate cancer (of course it comes with other health risks), it still seems like a risk to me. But I love my wine and the thought of not drinking at all is not fun. I welcome anyone else's thoughts.
