Ok just been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer with a Gleeson Score of 7 (4+3)
I'm 49 and I already have ED so both the Surgery and Radiation options sound like a shitty deal.
Can I "demand" to have something like Cryo or Ultrasound in the Public System or would I have to go Privately.
Also quality of life is more important to me than length of life. How many good years would I get if I just didn't do anything?
sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I have several friends who have used Proton Beam therapy with fantastic results. I know another who used hyperthermia with good results. This is your life . . . do whatever it takes. Best of luck.
Ask for it.....and if they say no ask why not? ask if its available privately and see how much it would cost. You might be able to fund it another way? Ask if there are any trials? Ask for alternatives.....absolutely ask the questions and get answers. They may not be the answers you want but you will feel a little more empowered by it and you may find an acceptable alternative. Good Luck 🙂
