Hi I had robotic surgery 6/06 & the cancer was confined to the prostate.
I have been reading about supplements for recurrence such as pomegranate juice, flaxseed & green tea.
Does anyone have some advice on which supplements to take ?

A low intake of red meat and a Mediterranean type diet is worthwhile. Supplements could also include lycopene, selenium, V E, V D if the diet is not high in them. I also include pomegranate juice and green tea, salmon and tuna.

I obtain an immune boosting liquid herbal mixture which includes olive leaf, astragalus, and mushroom extracts.

Congratulations Jeff 11 on your successful surgery June, 6th. My oncologist strongly recommends Vitamin
D which has been proven in clinical trials
to possess immune support capabilities.
I take 500 IU twice daily along with a regular regimen of other vitamins including Omega 3 fish oil 1200 mg twice
daily. I also take calcium 1300mg and regular multi-vitamins.
I know guys who spend 20 minutes taking all their vitamins. Oncologist says they have the most expensive urine in Chicago. Who's right? Don't know for sure.

Take Care

Hi Aus & Veteran1
Could you give me the brand names & dosage you take on the multi vitamin & other supplements you are taking ?
I am starting pomogranate juice 8 ounces daily
2 tablespoons of flaxseed daily & green tea supplement but I need help with the rest.
Thank You Jeff11

You may want to consult the calcium and Vitamin D.  Vet and I are both on Hormone Therapy.  Because of that we are advised to up the calcium and Vitamin D to protect our bones.  Pomagranate juice has alot of support though.  I just ordered two books on prostate cancer and diets.  My oncologist has indicated a healthy diet but that diet does not have any proven benefit to late stage prostate cancer, which I was diagnosed with.  But I see alot of conflicting information and know that a healthy diet is best regardless of this disease.  I recently did a post on Michael Milken.  He swears by diet and work outs to keep going after 14 years with stage IV cancer.  I can't argue that and just ordered his book.
