Hi I am a recent diagnosed prostate cancer patient. On 27.10.17 I have a right ureter blockage surgery and has a stent implanted. From my operation I have biopsy taken from right , left and ureter and all confirmed cancerous with Gleason score 4+5. Recent PSMA pet scan and CT and Bone Scan put my PCa at Stage 4 T3 N2 M3. I am 62 male and Asian. I am rejecting orthodox hormone therapy and chemotherapy. With the recent findings I am now treating myself with doxsig and vitamin c. Reason being I feel fine health wise although the medical reports contradict my wellness. I just started dosxsig and vitamin c to bowel tolerance.
I am surprised I only needed 15g/day with 2x100 mg doxsig. Currently I am feeling fine. No problem eating, no pain, can sleep and is working at reduced hours 3 days a week. Only discomfort is frequent urination and it affects my sleep. Like to know any empathy follwers as I think this treatment is been on clinical trial.
Welcome to our group - and sorry for the need to join. But we are all men with advanced prostate cancer.
I cannot answer your specific question about an empathy trial - I even ‘googled’ it, but found no reference. Perhaps someone has some knowledge of it.
But I would feel bad if I did not at least weigh in and tell you that I personally ignored what ended up being warning signs of PCa - particularly frequent urination. I was getting up 5 times a night and somehow thought this was just part of getting older. I had no knowledge of prostate cancer - what it was, what a PSA was, and the dangers of ignoring it. I had no other symptoms until I developed tremendous back pain that came on quite rapidly. I suffered a fracture of my T8 vertebra due to the cancer and could barely walk. When diagnosed with an MRI (no sign of cancer on an x-ray), I already had advanced disease and a PSA of 227 at age 53.
I don’t know your PSA score, but with a Gleason score of 9, you have a very aggressive cancer (mine is 4+4=8). And I’d strongly recommend you reconsider your treatment decision. Obviously neither myself or others on the forum are doctors, just well educated patients that learned out of necessity. But I do know that this disease can be successfully treated. ADT is core to first line treatment and extends life. While it has side effects, the best side effect is it can keep the disease in check - and extend your life. And when combined with other therapies that came out of the recent Stampede and Lattitude studies, this disease can potentially be treated for a long time - hopefully until they find a cure for us all.
Best of luck in your journey. I know it’s hard. I just wanted to offer you an alternative to consider. Many of us learned this lesson the hard way.
Thanks for your thoughts. My PSA is 0.94 05/16 2.24 02/17 and after surgery 16.43 11/17 and I will be checking up again next couple of days. All this information is new to me. As I had mentioned I feel great solely for not taking up Bi Eligard medication prescribed by my urologist. I am also monitoring my PH level while doing this treatment. For more info you can google doxycycline and vitamin c cure for cancer, I am glad I have past the haemorrhage point if the vitamin dosage did not work. Looking forward to the next step in my journey.
Thanks for the info Ronald it looks very promising -- keep us posted on how it works -- did you see where it enhances radiation treatment.
have you considered Doxy plus vitamin C plus radiation and ADT/ zytiga
What you suggest sounds like intergrative cancer treatment which was been carried out fairly successful. Check on the net as this could be time consuming and expensive
yes, by combining the new discovery (doxycicline and Vitiman C) with the other treatments -- they may all be synergistic and able to kill it all. Doxy and vitiman C may be just the thing that does the trick - and really wipes the cancer out completely.
