Diagnosed Metastatic Prostate Cancer in 2021.
I was diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer early in 2021, so immediately began hormone therapy. In August 2021 I started 6 rounds of chemotherapy 3 weeks apart (hence over 18 weeks), which was totally successful - scans at the end of treatment could not detect any presence of cancer cells(!). My oncologist stated it was 'a minor miracle'.
Throughout the treatment - and still to this day - I was under the care of integrative GPs and a naturopath, who prescribed an extensive and individually tailored nutritional regime which included high dose vitamin infusions, glutathione, zinc, magnesium, melatonin, CBD/THC, mushroom extract etc. to support my body to withstand the chemo, and to beef up my immune system.
In January this year it was recommended I also undertake a course of radiotherapy to 'mop up' remaining disease, which I completed in February.
This month, following routine blood tests which showed a very slightly elevated PSA reading then a PET scan, a new lesion was discovered on my hip. In consultation with the oncologist and radiotherapy oncologist we decided to simply continue with the nutritional regime and closely monitor the lesion every 3 months ongoing.
Consultation has concluded. Thanks for your contributions.
