Treated 2003 • Posted 2004
"I am so thankful that God directed me to the right place for treatment of my prostate cancer."
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in May of 2003 with a Gleason score of 7 and a PSA of 5.7. After carefully considering all options and doing a lot of investigative work, I opted for Proton Radiation at Loma Linda and started treatment in August of 2003.
During the entire time at Loma Linda I made daily trips to the gym, and went swimming every afternoon. I was told that I might experience some tiredness towards the end of the treatment. I experienced no side effects and I never felt tired during my entire stay in Loma Linda.
I finished treatment in October 2003 and had my first PSA follow up in January 2004. My PSA went from the 6.5 at start of treatment to 1.7. I will follow up again in May. So far I feel great and I am so thankful that God directed me to the right place for treatment of my prostate cancer.
