My father-in-law is 86 years old, lives in rural North Carolina with recurrent prostate cancer, PSA 287! He is not responsive to present and past treatments.
He is basically in good functional status although he has a multitude of other chronic medical problems. Presently able to be useful to himself, his ailing wife and community.
Oncologist wanted him to enjoy the holidays and wait for the chemotherapy to start on 1/7/10.
Should he have chemotherapy? That is what has been suggested to halt the rapid rise of PSA. Has been going up by almost 90 points every month for the past 3 months.
Have taught father-in-law how to self treat with eToims since 12/6/09. Cancer is due to lack of oxygen, therefore, he should be given the chance of improving oxygenation by better perfusion and circulation through the exercise effects of the twitches.
