Eat any papaya down there?
Papaya can help a lot with stomach imbalances. My family has learned to eat it often.
It is mostly GMO, like the corn products in so many processed foods.

Yes ate papaya. The fruit wasn't as great as I thought it would be since it is their dry season. The bananas were great and the vegetables were great and so fresh. The food there is pretty bland by our standards but I'm very happy to eat staples like rice, potatoes and salad.

All over Central Am. the food is mostly organic by default. A farmer who makes 3000 pesos a year doesn't put any barrels of poison on his field because they cost more than 3000 pesos a barrel.
By living in the richest places on earth we get the most poison in our food.
We also get used to vegetables that are pretty and plenty.

Isobars,
It's interesting that you passed on the traditional methods of treating cancer.

I didn't pass on the gold standard treatment: surgery. Been there, done that.

My own exhaustive research of the peer-reviewed literature, vetted in person by one of the nation's foremost radiation oncologists, persuaded me to reject that option as FAR more likely to harm than help IN MY CASE.

Hormone therapy is not curative, merely a potential delay of the inevitable with almost certain horrendous side effects.

There is a lot of medical support these days for not treating certain forms of prostate cancer. There are common forms of prostate cancer that develop very slowly over time, and are not particularly life threatening. Often, those with less aggressive forms of cancer will die of other unrelated conditions or problems before the cancer would kill them. Needless to say though, there are very agressive forms of prostate cancer that will spread and kill very quickly.

Given the fairly significant span of time (years) that isobars has been dealing with his problem, I'm inclined to think that his particular cancer is a less aggressive form. Things could have been much worse for him.

Gleason 8, SVI, and negative margins, dude. Highly aggressive, recurring, HIGHLY likely to kill me before anything else does, and not compensated by the VA. Oncologists have told me repeatedly that I know more about prostate cancer than do the vast majority of non-specialist physicians. I have read many thousands of technical pages and written many hundreds of dense, often very technical, pages about it. Many of those pages I wrote about MY case and its treatment changed the minds of the oncology team in charge of my care (they said so), and my current self-prescribed treatment appears so far to be doing more short- and long-term good, with 100% fewer serious side effects, than their prescribed treatments for my recurrent case. What do my oncologists say about my approach? "Some of our partners are beginning to study it".

It may even improve my WSing, seriously, whereas their prescribed treatment would have ended it altogether.

My God, people. I can't comprehend the number here who think they know more than I do about my education, my WSing, my finances, my military life, my medical history, my career, my legal activities, and the rest of my life. I should just go sit in a home and let you guys live my life for me, considering how much you know about it.

What's YOUR PSA?
