REENTERING TREATMENT

for sometime now i have withdrawn from treatment. i'm almost 90 thought i'd let nature run it's course and get it over with . it was nice to get away from the side effects of treatment. had a change of mind , due to the slow progress of P/C and the accumulation of mets. so now i'm reentering treatment . my onc. Dr. is not available till Monday

At 90--you get to choose---sounds like you a ways to go no matter which way you choose---as it appears, you have a slow growing Pca.

Good Luck

Good luck, Joe! Your strong and fighting spirit is admirable. I'm 59 with a rising PSA after brachytherapy, and a pet scan scheduled in a couple of weeks. All the best to you. Keep us posted. Best, Leo

Sending tons of hugs and prayers! I hope you live to 200!

If you have bone pain we have found this inexpensive(for a pemf) little pemf device really helps.. My husband uses on his bone pains(he has cancer) and I use it on mine(just from exercise). It is by sota - sota.com - it is called the magnetic pulser.. you just turn it on and hold it over the sore area. You can also build your own.. I will post a link if you are interested.. I just don't have the time to build one and find all of the components, so I bought one from sota.

I wish I had known about when my dad was alive I would have bought him one. It would have really helped him with his pains. If you don't have any aches and pains then you don't need it and you are really fantastic!

Get Well Soon!
