I've been following this thread since it started and find it very interesting. On the one hand, there's all this ANECDOTAL evidence of guys here who've arrested post treatment PSA growth with careful attention to diet. On the other it makes sense to me that if you've been eating garbage for 60 years, what changes you make over a year or less won't matter (when it comes to PC). Back to the other hand, one can only conclude, if this worked so well for Cashless, Wilderness, and others, it's worth trying in earnest if one has a rising post treatment PSA.
So I can only conclude that I have an eating disorder. Because despite my knowledge about what's been going on here, and my last 3 post prostatectomy PSA's, starting at the 2 year mark, have been .02, .033, .033, and .046, (from January 2017 to November 2017) , I've been eating like pure garbage, including plenty of carbs, ice cream, cake, pastrami, and other junk.
I haven't tested since November and plan to do my next test the last week in March, or first week in April. Right now I'm fully expecting something like a .06-.07 .
I'm going to try to hit the reset button, although I doubt that proper diet will so much good in a time frame as short as five weeks.
This is more of a rant than anything, thanks for letting me do so.
What he said. Ditto.
Cashless and Wilderness and whoever else has been doing this with such apparent success, congrats. Impressive. This reminds me of Ornish's experiments ( small #s ) with guys on AS I believe. He had great results overall, mostly improved, with pictures ( MRI I think it was ) of shrunken tumors. Although I alays wondered about
that: if they were on AS, would they have tumors big enough to see on imaging? Anyway, those results got my attention. As do these. I may be forced to relent and make some major changes!
