This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
Glad there was no pain this time. The manufacturer will send any Dr. training DVDs and even send an experienced nurse (to any Drs office including Kaiser) to demonstrate the injection on you. Mixing and not waiting to inject too long after completing 5 minutes of swishing (not shaking up-and-down) to mix are critical along as are the angle and depth (supposed to go under the skin with no blood when syringe pulled back a bit)http://www.ferringpromise.com/ 1-855 uro services 1-855-876-7378.
It is worth a testosterone test to be sure its working at under 20ng testosterone. You can also have DHT tested; not sure if Proscar is needed or not to bring DHT to undetectable levels.
All the best, Tom Hamilton, age 50 PSA 0.2 recurred 6 years after Da Vinci prostatectomy surgery (PSA .02 at year 3 doubling every 6 months). I am taking Bioresponse B-DIM to stabilize my PSA, it worked great for 1st 6 months but now rising again at month 8 (back to PSA 0.2).
