I'm Niall and am now almost 67 and was diagnosed in Oct 2013, PSA 620 and out of 12 cores in my biopsy, 10 were normal and a Gleason 3+4 in one and 4+4 in the other. Widespread metastases in all my vertebrae and ribs, a little at the top of my right femur and one in my skull. No organ or visceral involvement. Have been on combined Zoladex and Abiraterone more or less since the beginning and a bone scan 7 months ago revealed a reduction of maybe 40 to 60% metasteses. At that stage my PSA which had gone down to 0.1 had risen to 3.6 and I have just completed a 6 month course of Radium 223 infusions. Today my PSA was 2.9.
I eat lots of fruit and veg, take Cod liver oil daily together with Pomi-t, Ginger root extract, Brocco max, Garlic tabs, CBD oil and pomegranate juice. Lots of tomato products and cruciferous veg. I eat white fish, tinned salmon, ( I don't like fresh salmon), chicken breast occasionally and red meat only about once or twice a year.
I exercise by jogging/walking/gardening to try and do 16 to 24k daily.
I feel really well and fit and can do absolutely everything I want, perhaps I get a little tired in the evenings, but life is excellent.
For those of you recently diagnosed take hope. It is certainly devastating and naturally myself and my wife had plenty of tears, but life can go on pretty much as before and remember the pace of scientific and medical discovery regarding this pernicious disease is gathering pace so whatever you do DO NOT DESPAIR!
