I'll repeat again: Anyone that has found a cure for cancer will be a billionaire and have a Nobel prize. If they don't have those then they don't have cure for cancer. RSO – CBD oil may do no harm but probably won't help.
You probably have figured out that you are in a very serious situation. Radiation and hormone treatment are the usual next treatments. I been through it and it is not that bad. In addition you should probably get chemo treatment at the same time. Make sure to keep your fitness level good and your weight at the upper end of normal. The secret to staying alive in your situation is to make sure you are fit enough to get the next drug when the last one fails.
One very positive development in your favour is that now they can do a blood test and read the genetic code of your cancer and try to find a drug match to stop it, which is new just this year.
I understand that RSO or any other sideline treatments claims to cure cancer however there is no study to support the claim. But radiation and chemeo doesnt care either they might put you in remission for some time. Good thing about prostrate ca is that there is harmonal therapy which can hold this ca for ages.
I am waiting for my first psa after 6 weeks and based on that will decide
1. if psa > .02 then go for harmonal injection to give more recovery time.
and after 6-8 weeks start radiation
2. If psa is < .02 then no treatment and will do another psa in 8 weeks and then as planned radiation and harmonal due to the gleason score and path. reports.
I am just trying to get some more time to recover as I dont feel like I am ready for the next treatment yet.
