Hi and welcome to the board. I had an RP in 2005 followed by rad started in Nov 2005. Gleason was 4+5. Psa at start of rad was still +10.
I had minimal side efffects from the radiation and what I did have disappeared within a week after completion.
Since that time I have been on Intermittent Hormone Therapy.
I switched oncologigists in May 2009 to Dr Myers after reading his book Beating Prostate Cancer. An excellent read but the supplement information is dated.
From June 2009 triple blockade Casodex, Lupron and Avodart. My last PSA in May was <.01 and I came off Lupron and Casodex but stayed on Avodart.
I take a Vit D3 supplement and have regular Vit D 25- hydroxy blood tests. Dr Myers likes to see it up about 60 ng/ml which has been a struggle for me in spite of my living in the tropics..
I also take a Full-Spectrum Pomegranate and Super Bio-Curcumin and Micronized Resveratrol based on his recommendation.
I thought there was a study done at Cedars Sinai on CAPSAINCIN that might be on the Gov site.
By the way I am feeling fine and have a positive outlook for the future.

I have asked both by onc and rad onc if the capsaincin is ok to take and both gave the go ahead. I am not currently on any hormones.
Has anyone else heard about the studies of cayenne (CAPSAINCIN) in regards to pc. Also vitamin D3.
