FATHER'S METASTATIC PROSTATE CANCER
Dear Ted, I came through Earthclinic website by chance and really appreciate the wonderful work that you are doing saving people's lives, as well as contributions from the community. The website has got a wealth of information.
My father (age: 79) suffers from Metastasis Prostate cancer, which was diagnosed in Feb 12 following the TURP procedure and has spread to bone, liver and lungs and also likely to bladder neck. He is currently on hormonal therapy. He is also diabetic (medication: Metformin and Sitagliptin), his blood sugar level is: 7 to 8 fasting and between 9 to 9.5 after food)), cholesterol (medication: Simvastatin). His PSA level was 65 in Feb 12 before the TURP, 12.9 after the hormonal therapy in April 2012 and currently it is 27 following the urine infection with bleeding. He is also in incontinence following TURP and he's taking Oxybutynin and Finasteride medications. At the moment he has no bone pain. He did have some dry coughing issue couple of weeks back but it appears that it has subsided since he was prescribed antibiotics for the urine infection. He does not take any sugary food (only occasionally). He uses coconut oil daily. I learnt from the Earthclinic website and therefore takes green apple in the fruit and soya milk. I would like to start herbal medication and therefore will be grateful if you could kindly help us how he can improve his current physical condition in terms of his prostate cancer. Can we contain the cancer or can we stabilize his health condition from further deterioration. Also pls advise whether there will be any interference between herbal and allopathic medications. Your early response will be much obliged.
