My dad was diagnosed In China with Gleason (3+5) 11/08/2012.
He is 66 years old with good health.
His tPSA is over 100. His fPSA is 16.86.
His bone scan came back negative.
I sent the biopsy slides to Dr. Epstein at JHU for second opinions.
Opinion from Dr. Epstein is worse. 100% of the 12 slides are positive. Gleason score is now 5+4 (presented in 2 of the 12 slides).
He suggests HT and RT. Said surgery will probably make no sense at this point.
Bone Scan negative (11/05/2012).
I think that CT scan is also negative.
Dr. Epstein's suggestion echoes with the opinions we got from some experts in China.
What should we proceed from this point? What is the expected life span for this stage of prostate cancer?
I read Dr. Walsh's book and Dr. Meyer's Book at HT and diet.
I bought the following supplement for my dad.
Source Naturals Vitamin D-3 -- 2000 IU - 200 Softgels
Schiff Natural Vitamin E Complex -- 200 IU - 100 Softgels
Nature's Bounty Lycopene 10mg, 60 Softgels
Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega, 1,000 mg Fish Oil, 180 Soft Gels
Nature's Way Soy Isoflavones Standardized -- 60 Capsules
Source Naturals Selenium, 200mcg, 60 Tablets
These are mostly suggested by Dr. Snuffy Myers.
Is there anyone experienced with taking diet supplement in Dr. Meyer's Book?
Your helps are greatly appreciated.
