Canderson's Recent CancerCompass Activity

    My husbands urologist says the number maters by how fast it starts to rise. If it doubles or triples in 3 or 4 months time OR rises to over 2, then he gets a hormone shot of Lupron. He was diagnosed with cancer in 07'. His PSA was only 4.4 at that time. Gleason score of 4+ 3 ( which is worse than 3+4). The cancer had left the prostate and had gone to his seminal vesticals. He had robotic surgery at that time. Tw...

        I give my husband 2tsps. of baking soda in 1 cup of warm water, mixed with 1 tsp. of black strap molasses every night. He will go back in a few weeks to see what his PSA is. Praying that this will work.

          My husbands Urologist will only give him the Lupron shot when his PSA goes up to about 2.0. He does not give it every three months like most Dr.s. This way he hopes it works longer. I am convinced that natural, holistic treatment is the way to go. I have bought all kinds of books and researched different web sites to find what I hope is the best natural treatment for my husband. As for the PSA........it goes any...

            You need to get him on Tumeric. You can buy it at the drug store. Also, 1 cup of warm water and 2 teaspoons od baking soda, mixed together, then add 1 teaspoon of Black Strap Mollasses. Tumeric is pill form in the a.m. Other solution...water baking soda in morning and evening. Also try Prosticad. Google it to find where to buy it. My husband was diagnosed in 07'. He went through robotic surgery. Two and 1/...

              Dan, my husband was diagnosed almost 8 years ago. He had the robotic surgery, then a couple years later the radiation treatment. He has had two rounds of Lupron in the past 23 months. I have had him on so many different supplements. paw Paw and Cantron for a couple of years. When it seemed like they stopped working he went on ProstaCaid. And then we added Tumeric when one of our friends who goes to MD Anderson...

                Why would they ever put him on hormone therapy until his PSA started to rise again? .01 is an undetectable PSA. That is a good thing. I would change DR.s at this point. In 23 months, my husband has only had two hormone shots. His doctor told him that the longer you can wait in between shots the longer it works. Stage 1 does not seem that bad. Sounds like it has not left the prostate. So my question would be.....

                  How will they know that you need a shot in Feb.? If your PSA has not gone up by then, won't it be to early to get one?

                    After my message on this board, I asked my husband if he had gotten headaches from his shots and he said no. The only time he gets headaches is when we turn the heat on in the fall.

                      My husbands Uroligist only gives him the Lupron shot when he needs it. His first shot lasted 18 months. He just had another shot in August. He does not get headaches from them. Only hot flashes. I would ask my Dr. why the shot every three months. By doing this every three months my hisband's dr. said the shot does not work as long and that they have found that by only giving the shot when needed is more effecti...
