well...I got my first PSA back after using BIRM for just 3 weeks...and feeling MUCH better and more energetic the whole time. But, ALAS, my PSA wasn't feeling the "BIRM" yet...LOL. It actually went UP...from 0.88 (six weeks ago) to 1.130 this time.
I told my oncologist about starting BIRM at my appointment where the blood was drawn...and she said "let's see what happens". I plan to stay on BIRM for the next 6 weeks and see how the PSA goes. If it's not lower, I will lower my dosage of BIRM and see how low I can go and still get the effects of pain reduction and energy increase. (I'm on Lupron and Xtandi)...and before BIRM I was already talking with them about lowering my dosage as I was feeling so weak and tired and in so much leg and feet pain.
The sense of well-being I've been having had me ready for a really low PSA....but my latest Axumin Pet Scan was really good...so I hope I'm still heading the right direction.
p.s. keep hoping that the "uptick" in PSA may be from cancer cells dying. It had gone up slightly (like this) when I had my Pet Scan done...and the results were "greatly improved" as I said. Has anyone ever had this happen with PSA?
John thanks for posting and filling us in on your progress. I just hope it keeps working for you. I'm also praying that that PSA will do an about face and start sliding downward again. I see my Oncologist and Urologist tomorrow. I just want some quality that you fortunately are getting now.
I truly feel blessed for feeling so good. Now when people ask me how I feel...I really don't have to lie ...when I say "Great". I wish the same for you!
want to try what your doing with birm need the 7 times strenghth stuff where can you get it i live in ireland best of luck j
I have the phone number and website to order the 7X....but I am feeling so good just using the regular and I am using a bit more than basic dose. I use apps 4 mls. in a little glass of water...3 times a day after eating. (I think it actually calls for 2 mls. after each meal...
If my PSA goes down on the next test...I might consider upping the dosage...but for now ...I feel very good (physically & emotionally) on this amount.
If my PSA goes up more...I might have to consider NOT taking it anymore. It's a wait and see thing right now.
all the best,
