Been quite a while since I posted but we recieved good news this week. Its been about two weeks since my dad found out his PSA was a 44. He completely changed his dieting and lifestyle and was put on some pills right beore his first shot of HT. Before he even went in for his first shot turns out his PSA had dropped 25. So very cool that even before treatment just the complete reversal in lifestyle has enabled him to nearly cut the PSA in half. Hopefully this bodes well for the future :).

Ray,

That is excellent news. However, I have never heard of any diet that could drop PSA 50 % in 2 weeks. I would also suspect the high PSA reading itself.

What pills did they give him ?

Not putting a damper on his success, just being sure we can attribute the correct reason for the drstic change.
