(Prostate Cancer Therapy Options & Alternatives) |Low Sexual Side Effects|Testimonials
Prostate cancer treatment main's challenge is not just to get rid of the cancer but do it in a way that does not leave you impotent, incontinent or with diarrhea for the rest of your life.
Conventional prostate cancer treatments, like surgery, high-dose radiation and chemotherapy, are know for spreading and metastasizing, specially after surgery.
Cancer cells have a life of their own, and are trying to survive and multiply just like the healthy cells.
When cancer cells are invaded by the surgeons scalpel, they feel threatened and they reproduce and spread to keep living. This is called metastasis.
Hyperthermia combined with low-dose radiation is not only very effective, with a proven track record success of about 80% for early stages of prostate cancer, but its sexual side effects are minimum or none, avoiding impotence, loss of libido and the need to take sexual enhancer like Viagra
The wife of one of our prostate cancer treatment "graduate" patients, said: "The side effects of prostate cancer treatment that traditional medicine uses, are ...you can be IMPOTENT, you can be INCONTINENT, you can have CONSTANT DIARRHEA for the rest of your life, and who wants to live with that if you don't have to...And "everything is working just great", so we are really glad, plus (the cancer) is gone!"
"I'm very happy"
"When we came here we started talking to people and (hear of) all good results that people have had, and (that) built up our confidence, and or course getting the PSA results through the months that continued make us say "Hey, look its (the PSA) going down!"
"I decided not to take the external beam radiation that the VA had offered me. I would become impotent, I wouldn't be able to function sexually active, no erections..."
"The (sexual) side effects from surgery, create problems with the sex life, they (conventional oncologists) told me. I will most certainly had to have Viagra after surgery,
to perform my sexual acts..."
"I was in pain when I came, my prostate was swollen. And the first week of treatment it wasn't hurting any more. What I noticed (before the Hyperthermia treatment) is that I couldn't site for 15 minutes when I came here. I couldn't sit properly, it was uncomfortable to sit. And after the treatment i could sit, I take it that (due to the treatment) the swelling went down"
"I think the main factor that made me decide to take the Hyperthermia combined with low-dose radiation treatment, is the lower dosages of radiation to lessen all side effects. I might add that my side effects are very, very minimum if any at all...Really I have no side effects, no pain, so I went out in my daily routine" "The treatment here was very good, everybody was friendly, helpful, and very supportive."
Q: How are your sexual functions now?
"They are real good for one thing because my PSA level keeps going up, because I was doing something I was not suppose to do! I told him (the doctor) that I was doing something sexually that I was not suppose to do, that's why (my PSA) went up... In other words, I couldn't do that (have sex) if I wouldn't have the treatment!"
"One thing is with surgery, there are a lot of (sexual) side effects. With surgery, I wouldn't be able to get an erection, I would have problems urinating, I would probably have to wear something (adult diapers) because urination was inconsistent (incontinence) and because of that it changes your life"
Q: Do you have any side effects?
"Right now, because I'm still into the treatment, urinating can be a little troublesome they give you pills for it and it's not a big deal. Every time I get those PSA tests, it is like a report card, "You are doing really well"
"You know, there muse be somebody that is doing what they are doing in Germany. It can't be that Germany is the only place in the world this (Hyperthermia) is done. In my opinion (Hyperthermia combined with low dose radiation) is probably the least stressful, least traumatizing treatment that I came across from. Basically the treatment is attacking the cancer through heat and radiation, using those two approaches to destroy the cancer without destroying the rest of the prostate. Like I said, my side effects had been very, very mild, I think I probably could have been working the whole time, really it would been a very few days that I would miss work. I think all in all it worked out really well, I feel I got it handled it, I feel really good now."
