Hi group, some good news.
Age 59, very healthy
Psa 2007 3.2
Psa fall 2008 4.9 two weeks later 4.4
11/2008 biopsy, T1c, gleason 3+3=6 low-volume prostrate carcinoma
1 of 12 samples malignant
Left lateral mid .05mm (5%)
CT scan negative
Consultation 12/2008 decided active waiting (diet) while researching options.
Followup PSA in March 2009
PSA MARCH 23 is 3.5!!! DRE no growth.
I assume this is good news, since it didn't go up.
I changed my diet a little, i was already eating pretty healthy. I added sal palmento, and garlic tabs. Have added Green tea instead of coffee. More tomatoes, cabbage, and broccoli. Drinking v8 juice
Doc says we can still wait and see, but of course PSA isnt the only indicator, another PSA late summer and if still under control another biopsy in November.
Still very active, gym , racquetball, yoga, or walks, almost every day.
Happy with life, keeping positive, great relationship with my wife.
Glad i decided to wait, best to all of you
