Mon, Aug 24 5:37pm · Anyone had the 5 treatment proton therapy for prostate cancer? in Prostate Cancer

I was diagnosed in 2014 and my PSA was 14 Gleason was 3+4. After the first treatment I did not have a catheter took a Tylenol for minor pain and had a couple rum. PSA dropped also don’t remember have to look on my computer i think it was around 3 or 4. Dr. Sperling at Sperling Prostate Clinic in Florida. In 2018 I had a check with Dr Sperling my PSA was around 6. So I asked Dr Sperling for another treatment (he did not charge me for it). It was a bit more intense and I had a catheter for a week. Dr. Sperling recommended follow up radiation to be safe as well as casodex and Lupron. I took the casodex for 3 months and have been on Lupron for 2 years. When i returned to Canada I saw my oncologist but told her that I did not want radiation. My quality of life is much more important to me then longevity however everyone will look at it through there own eyes. I have been stable for the last 2 years and my PSA has been consistently around .2. The Lupron has had some unpleasant side affects hot/cold sweats, sore joints, fatigue, loss of strength all better then the alternative. You may also want to look at Rick Simpson Oil protocol it’s marijuana oil called “Phoenix Tears”lots of info on the internet. If you send me a private message with your email I can send you a bunch of info. I had to pay for the treatment since I live in Canada. However in the USA my understanding it’s covered by insurance.

Oh yes the RSO is very good if you have nausea or sleep problems. I take it about 8pm. It kicks in about 10:30-11 then I go to bed and sleep a good 8-10 hrs don’t even wake for the bathroom. It works well and has good reviews for anti cancer. I got introduced to it through a friends wife who had terminal lung and brain cancer given a couple months to live. I talked with her daughter who started her on RSO. That was almost 6 years ago now. Amazing!

SBRT sounds like a good treatment approach. For myself I looked at many options short listed HIFU and FLA and chose focal laser ablation. I had 2 treatments one in 2014 and one 2018. The treatments were significantly less invasive then radiation.
