I though a positive note might help. I was diagnosed Oct 2013, PSA 620. Two of 12 biopsy cores cancerous. Gleasons, 3 and 4. 4 and 4. Widespread bony metastases to spinal column, ribcage, pelvis. Smaller lesions in humerus and femur and skull. After a few weeks on Casodex, changed to Abiraterone, Goserlin (Zoladex). I have also had Radium 223. PSA fell initially to 0 then has risen slowly. Last reading 22. Most recent scans show no organ or soft tissue involvement. My consultant says that I am doing remarkably well. I will be 69 in June 2018.
What's my secret? Of course this might just be for me but this is what I think.
Number 1. An absolute must. Vigorous exercise. I try to to about 16k (10 miles) per day.
Number 2. Virtually no dairy. I eat cheese about 3 or 4 days a year as a treat. That's it!
Number 3. Very high fruit & Veg diet, practically no red meat, except as an occasional treat. Fish & Chicken allowed.
Number 4. Take supplements that include, Lycosine, Pomegranate, Broccoli, Green tea, Ginger root, Garlic and incorporate these foods into your cooking.
Number 5. Don't despair and Enjoy life! You will die eventually, but Hey! so will everyone else.
Get jogging and if you can't do that swim and if you can't do that walk and if you can't do that wave your arms about, BUT EXERCISE!
Best wishes guys,
