Finally got the ALL GO I'm approved for the LU-177 Trial in Omaha with Dr. Luke

greatjohn profile image

I have been loading our SUV...packing and getting ready for the big day (tomorrow) all this week..and I just finally got the email that I was 100% approved for trial. The way It was set up...I have my first injection on Monday morning there...I needed to leave tomorrow to make it there with a day to rest before the injection. We had decided that we would go on a road trip EVEN if I wasn't approved for the trial...because we had to be ready to go. I just got the news at 4pm today and we're heading out for Omaha for six months in the morning. I love this place, the doctor, and his entire staff. Hope springs eternal.

I think so, but he is a force of nature. Amazing how much time he spent with me going over my case history from his memory. Two full hours.

Some guys have all the luck.

Have a great trip and best of luck with your treatment.

Brilliant- May the force of Lutetium be with you.

Hello, I had the opportunity to listen to Dr. Luke a few years ago at the PCRI conference in Los Angeles. Trust me, greatjohn you are in good and capable hands. Here is an Irish Blessing, if I remember it correctly from my youth, to help you on your way:

"May you have a long life full of gladness and health,

With a pocket full of gold as the least of your wealth,

May the dreams you hold dearest be those which come true,

The kindness you spread keep returning to you!"

There are lots of us on Health Unlocked interested in your Lutetium story so stay in touch. Good luck and God bless!

Wishing you an amazing journey and heartfelt recovery.

Congratulations and best wishes!

Happy travels together. Great adventure awaits. Omaha!

Prayers lifted up for a great sojourn and result in the heartland of America. Peace and healing.

Hey John: Wishing you a wonderful voyage to Omaha. This forum really needs a success right now (I feel), and I am hoping it comes to you. Have a safe trip, and my non-religious thoughts and prayers are sincerely with you. Mark

Great news! Wishing you the best. 🙏

God be with you. Looking forward to hearing your success.

all positive thoughts go with you, John.

Omaha! Omaha!

Safe Travels John - you will do Great!

great news...thoughts and safely...

Great attitude, and Attitude is Everything!!We wish you much progress toward remission with LU-177. The US needs this approved soon! Show us the way Brother🙏

Wishing you every success in your treatment ! Kim and Clint in the UK xx

I wish you look and send my prayers for a good result.

Is the trial you are doing still open? and is it open to castration-sensitive, chemo naive patients?

I think it requires being castrate resistant

Ok thanks. It’s interesting that several trials and they all focus on the same demographic. The good news is that it will help you guys. I hope you do very well.

O-MA-HA........Omaha Indian word meaning “upstream people". So let's hope and pray your results are upstream....

Good Luck, Good Health and Good Humor.
