Bigfrank, a few people asked questions of your earlier post. 21 years is rare territory. Your Bio says u r Gl 7. Is that 4+3 or 3+4. Makes a difference yes? Surgery or Radiation since Dx? ADT?

I'm a fan of the proton treatments. It has now been one month since my last treatment of 25 sessions and I am feeling pretty great, compared to before my treatment began.

Would they add chemo to this too? I did Keytruda ( still am ) with the beam. Before treatment I was unable to walk and was self cathater 100% of the time. Now walking and pissing without cath. Pictures in November, fingers crossed.

I wish you the best Mike in your decision!

Dave, article from Univ of Pennsylvania Med was 28 fractions of Proton just as effective as 44. Above. I am still being told not a candidate for surgery or radiation. MSK in 2 weeks to learn what they can do for me. Maybe somme combo w Nano Knife. Maybe the balloon treatment with Proton? So far saying not a candidate for Space Oar gel. Never give up, never give in. Leave no stone unturned.

Best,

Mike

Dang, I could of been done in half the time! I do not miss those treatments at all and just so they can fully appreciate it, I think all radiation docs should experience the balloon up their ass.

Butt, it appears to work!

I admire the shit out of your searching for all options! Bulldog Mike.

Cheers to you!

Dave,“Butt, it appears to work”😂. Its good to laugh. Laughter can heal. “It all works, but nothing works well”

Maybe everything, laughter, ADT, Proton, Nano Knife, Excercise, Weight training, Good Western Medicine, Eastern Meditation with Blessings, Power of the Mind, Plant based diet (I said based = room for Mediterranean based Fish), Green Tea, Pomi-T, Cruciferous vegetables, Quiet soulful time in Nature, Surrounding ourselves with Family, Friends, Love.

Maybe all of this is enough to buy us time until an actual cure comes along. There will be a cure. That is a certainty. Will it come in our Lifespan?
