I signed up back in March or April shortly after my husband was diagnosed. I haven't really posted much as I still am at a loss I think, but I always read your posts and they have all been very helpful and positive. It was originally thought my husband had a prostate infection, however after a month of antibiotics and no changes they did a biopsy but at the time said it was just a precaution as he is only 48. The Gleason score was 9 and after a bone scan and CT scan we were advised the cancer had spread to the bones and lymph nodes. We started Hormone Therapy and after the second round were advised it was failing as the PSA had doubled.
We started Chemo on October 5th, and just last week after arriving at the hospital for the 4th treatment we were advised the PSA was rising again and the chemo had failed. so we have now just started another androgen pill in hopes this one will work for us.
They tell us we have a few more treatment options but I am wondering if there are any suggestions with respect to natural treatments. Like the Vitamin C IV etc? Any suggestions, or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. :)
