  PLATINUM  
This is his Country or State Flag

G. Glass lives in California, USA. He was 55 when he was diagnosed in February, 1998. His initial PSA was 10.00 ng/ml, his Gleason Score was 8, and he was staged T1c. His choice of treatment was External Beam Radiation (Proton Beam). Here is his story.

Initial treatment was Proton Beam Radiation, followed by cryotherapy, hormone treatment, strict 100% Vegan diet (which held PSA flat for 2 years).

Currently taking Ketoconozole (400 mg) with 5 mg Prednisone, Xgeva and Lupron. PSA has stayed level for over a year with Ketoconozole, I plan to go back to a 100% Vegan diet if my PSA exceeds 150. I do light exercise regularly.

My first treatment was Proton Beam Radiation, which I choose because of the lack of side effects.

Surgery was my next choice, but in studying the literature I found it had too many risks and side effects.

My PSA has been steady for over two years on a treatment of Lupron, Xgeva, and 5mg Prednisone + 400 mg Ketoconazole daily.

This is my sixteenth year of survival !! I feel fine !!

For my own incontinence I have developed and tested an extremely comfortable penis clamp. For details see kx170b.com/wang.htm. It is so comfortable I have to reach down to verify that I put it on. It can be worn 24/7.

I have now survived prostate cancer 16 years and am doing very well.

I am a 17 year survivor this summer. I am 73 years old and functioning well. I get light to moderate exercise each day, and eat a low-fat diet. What a surprise - I didn't think I would last this long.

UPDATED

August 2016

This is my 18th year of survival. I get fatigued from Lupron injections, but staying active in physical tasks seems to help to stay alert (along with caffeine). I think it's important to not think a lot about cancer a lot. The psychological strain can be worse than physical problems.

UPDATED

September 2017

Soon to be a 20 year survivor! Doctors can't say why. I try to ignore the disease. I think many men die of worrying about it. Treatment is monthly Lupron and Xgeva injections with Prednisone + Ketoconazole combination. Relax - life your life.
