I was bordering on having to start HT in Dec. 2012.  My PSA had increased from 0.1 to 0.2 from May 2012 to Dec. 2012. I found a good MO and she advised to wait another 6 months and see what happened. We talked a little about diet and i decided to switch to a mediterranean diet with no red meat at all. In May i increased from 0.2 to 0.26. It seemed to slow down a little for whatever reason.

Doctor will not say it was all from the diet change but it sure did not hurt to change plus it is heart healthy. Got another 6 months and will see what happens again. Myself i am convinced it has helped slow it down.

Diagnosed 2006 PSA 4.8 from 4.0, Stage III, PT3b NO focally positive margin and perineural invasion. RP Sept 2006 PSA 0.05 thru 2008. June 2009 0.1, Dec 2009 0.2, May 2010 0.4.  8 weeks IMRT Aug 2010 + 6 months HT. Nov 2010 0.06, May 2011 0.01, Dec. 2011 0.04, May 2012 0.1, Dec 2012 0.2, May 2013 0.26.
