Good news on dad...so far.

My dad's bone scan revealed there has been no spreading of his prostate cancer to this point. He has a decision to make on treatment...either radiation or implanting of the radium seeds. Anyone have experience or opinions on either one of these?

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers. Ya'll are the best!! [smilie=a_goodjobson.gif]

No advice here just words of encouragement.

My son Elijah just made it through testicular cancer. They removed 1st cancer, scanned in 4 months, saw more, field dressed him like a deer from sternum to pelvic bone and removed Lymph nodes in belly and 4 were bad, put him on 12 weeks of chemo, we shaved our heads together, he got skinny, he lost eyebrows, kept his smile and got through it.

3 Months later they said "Cancer Free" for whatever that is good for.

He's Alive and Well thanks to the Lord. I'll left yer Daddy up in prayer. Others just did for my Momma and she is healing.

Hang in there Uncle Bubba's Daddy!

No advice here Uncle Bubba. My Mom is going through chemo as we speak. She has her second treatment on Thursday so how about I just offer up some more prayers.

My Father in Law did a combo of the seeds and radiation. They caught it pretty early so the treatment seemed easy, as far as radiation goes.

Hope all goes well with your dad.

Prayers Up.

Tell him to skip all them treatments and start eating only raw fruits veggies and nuts. Drink only steam distilled water. 16 oz of fresh carrot juice each day by fresh I mean real carrots run through a juicer. He can have one pig out day per week where he eats anything he wants. That pick him up some B vitamins if he eats meat on the pig out day. Just my dos centavos. Its how I plan to do it when I get it. Know it works.
