Hello, I have been to this site before in researching my prostate cancer and decided today to register as this topic caught my attention.
I was confirmed/diagnosed sep/2018 with a biopsy that showed 9/12 cores positive and 2 were Gleason 9.
Because I've had a history of marijuana use, one of the first things I did was buy cannabis oil online to start my own alternative treatment immediately.
With the help of Google I decided on a 1/2 gram of oil suppository twice a day for 60 days. I also took and still am taking cbd oil sublingually once a day. My intention was to lower my psa and fight the tumors/lesions I have for two months before starting the cancer clinics recommendation of ADT, while waiting to have my radical prostatectomy surgery scheduled. Well fear took over and I relented to the clinic and had a Zoladex(90 day) injection 2 weeks after starting my cannabis suppositories.
I can add an interesting footnote though. I had bloodwork done the day of my biopsy and my psa was 14.8 and the day of my Zoladex injection I asked for another psa test which resulted in a psa of 11.2. So there was a 2 week timeline where I was on the cannabis oil suppository and cbd oil orally that may have been responsible for lowering my psa number..., or, can it be explained as just a variable in normal psa fluctuation?
I will never know because of course the Zoladex immediately starts to affect your psa. I did continue to take the cannabis oil suppository for the whole 2 months and told my doctor about it, and he was curious but in the end doubtful anything like that would help.
So now going into my fifth month I've had 2 mri's which show my two tumors have shrunk to 1/2 their original size and my psa level was down to .44 on the last blood test in January when I received a 2nd 90 day injection because I am still waiting for a surgery date. I also had a negative bone scan and a negative cat scan so hopefully things stay where they are or get better. Yah, that's how slow things are in Canada getting a surgery. Basically free healthcare but you have to wait.
I take cbd everyday just in case there is something to it.
When you had the PSA test on the day of Zoladex injection, and it had dropped from 14.8 to 11.2: was there any other treatment during the 2 weeks prior to Zolodex, other that the CBD oil? I, a G9, had a PSA redone at my URO's office after my 8.1 at the primary doc's office, and 3 weeks later it was up to 10.9.
