Hi, I am new to this forum and looking for Tall Allen's (thanks for your past help Allen) or anybody else's thoughts.
I have been treated since 2011 when I got diagnosed with a PSA of 65, Gleason 4+3=7 and seminal vesicle involvement. I had brachytherapy, IMRT and 2 years of hormone therapy done at the time.
My PSA remained fairly stable at .3 till it progressively rose to 2.94. Last year in July 2017 I had a lymph node dissection done by Jeffrey Karnes (who is a truly wonderful doctor) at the Mayo as a Gallium scan I had done via clinical trial at UCSF revealed several active nodes.
After the dissection my PSA dropped to a new low of .08, suggesting I had active cancer in those nodes all along.
My PSA is now at .13 after two successive rises.
Though I am not actively seeking treatment yet, the trend is suggestive and I am trying to be as prepared and proactive as possible.
My question is, "What are the most proven practices that I can do to slow PSA progression?"
I have read many things throughout the years of dietary impact on PSA progression, some from clinical trials. Eggs, meat, milk, sugars, corn, on and on. If you search enough, you can probably find drinking water is f-c-i-g PSA progressive. Haha!
What is real and what is not? What dietary or behavior practices are REALLY proven to help stall PSA?
