Hello to you all as you are all my heroes right now. My father, age 64, was diagnosed mid July with advanced prostate cancer. He is on lupron, which I myself have been on and understand the difficulty, and hes on exgeva and will be undergoing chemotherapy for 6 sessions 3 weeks apart. He is eager to start sooner but is starting by mid november. Psa 78 down to 27 in 6 weeks. As a daughter, I understand that my father wants to protect me , but I've done as much research as possible. However, I have found the internet to give very harsh information, survival rates and cold statistics, yet no real invetory of the human experience so that i can understand at multiple levels. I know there are men out there living with advanced prostate cancer beyond that statistical time and I need some hope and faith in the treatment. I am so fearful of him dying because of chemo not cancer, and I'm asking what success some have achieved and if any herbs or supplements helped to protect your major organs? As a caretaker,please give me hope or truth about this protocol, and any advice can you give me to make this journey easier on him. I believe that some out there can untaint my mind from reading so many statistics. My dad's mindset is very positive,he is in pain but continues to work, ....exhausted since the lupron bUT CANNOT Sleep and has been seking advice for sleep . Any and all responses are helpful. I have cried daily until recently reaching acceptance and embracing this journey together, but I'd like to hear from survivors to inform me of the effectiveness of this protocol and what I can do or buy to help my dad sleep, heal, and live as fully as possible for as long as possible . My dad is not emotionally ready to reach out himself but i will convey any stories or advice Gentle hugs and true admiration of you all.
