    Experience with Spaceoar Gel

    Diagnosis: Gleason 4+3, several tissue samples with cancer cells. Therapy: Radiation
    About 3 weeks ago the gel was injected between prostate and colon as a shield to protect colon from radiation. Radiation is underway now.
    This gel is a new development ho help reduce radiation side efects.

    Problem: Spaceoar Gel apparently to low positioned and eventually some gel in the injection cannula holes.

    Situation: Permanent pain in the perineum area between scrotum and anus. Very uncomfortable. This gel gets hard right after the injection. Now it is pressing hard and rubbing permanently from the inside. No seating for lunch or dinner, no car driving. Pain is always there.

    Geld gets dissolved and disappears apparently after 2-3 months. I can't imagine waiting so long with that pain.

    Any experience with such a situation or any advice?

    Thank you

    Re: Experience with Spaceoar Gel

    Hi Kazike, I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience and hope you feel better now. I am desperately seeking treatment for my father because he has prostate cancer and 3 doctors have all said the same thing, can't do surgery, chemo, or radiation. One did mention about this gel, but he said it would not be available to him for a year because it is not FDA approved?? Meanwhile, the cancer spread to 90% of his prostate and it would be wonderful to get treatment before it spreads to the bone or anywhere else. The insurance will not cover him going to to outside coverage like the city of hope research center. Can you please tell me where one can get this treatment done? We are in California. Your advice would be GREATLY appreciated.
