Hi All, just found this site. I am 73, diagnosed in Oct 2017 with advanced PCa, metastasised to the bones (which may be weakened), PSA 960. Within days of seeing a specialist, I was put onto Hormone Therapy (HT), pills first (bicalutamide) then 3-monthly jabs of leuprorelin. I quickly began to feel better, no more pain killers, only side effect hot flushes. PSA already down to 6.9. Now the flushes are the only reminder that I have PCa. Life expectancy a few years. I have accepted consultant's offer of 6 rounds of docetaxel chemo, starting very shortly, which on average should add 1-2 years to my life.
Researching what happens after that, my impression is that, once PCa becomes hormone refractory (i.e. HT ceases to work) that is curtains, though plenty active research (e.g. disulfiram, just published in Nature and reported in mainstream newspapers). Can I help myself with diet and supplements and lifestyle? Clearly yes, but limited.
I have a particular question. Can anybody advise on Pfeifer Protocal (google it)? It looks highly promising but last reference I can find is a utube video of a lecture in 2015 by Prof Ben Pfeifer. After that I can find nothing about Ben Pfeifer nor his protocol. He is no longer with Swiss clinic. Has he retired? I am suspicious that I can find no publication of the results described at the end of his seminar.
Advice on this and more generally is welcomed. I should have some years yet, and badly want "some" to be more than 5!
