Stephen Z lives in New York, USA. He was 74 when he was diagnosed in August, 2013. His initial PSA was 5.00 ng/ml, his Gleason Score was 7a, and he was staged T2c. His choice of treatment was HIFU (HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)). Here is his story.
HIFU (Sonablate) performed 10/28/2013 in Nassau, Bahamas by Dr. Daniel Lowe and Dr. George Suarez. PSA has been undetectable since the procedure. I've experienced no urinary incontinence. I had ED for two months post HIFU and since then no ED whatsoever. Bottom line: no side effects. I continue to have PSA tested every six months. So far, so good.
It is now three years & three months after HIFU. PSA is 0. No side effects. I get PSA tested every six months and see my urologist every six months. So far so good.
