- Positive interaction of casodex and saw palmetto
July 2011: biopsy Gleason 7 for 2 of 24 (large number in Japan, done in a surgical room). Lupron + casodex (1 mont injection). PSA slowly declined. Minimal side effects, except for being horny for the first 10 days. Next was 3 months, side effects of severe night sweats and flush, but manageable. PSA below 1. Continued for 3 months, but severe sensitivity in breasts and other side effects made life so miserable, I stopped Lupron, but continued Casodex for a few more weeks. Found a British study that showed on/off treatment was maybe even better than continuous Lupron/Caodex. PSA 0.05 when stopped. Rose to 3.9 over the next nine months. MRI showed reduced prostate size and no lumps, but went back to Casodex for a few months. PSA below 1, so stopped again for a
few months. Repeating cycle. Taking Doctor's Best Prostate Formula (with my doctor's nod (no harm, waste of money). But I found urination became easier.
Now take saw palmetto in the morning and Doctor's Best at night. Even better results, no sweats, no hot flashes, but very surprising happy side effect, which has cheered my wife very much (and me, too). Much, much better than the time I tried Viagra and others after the biopsy, and at 2 cents a pill vs $20, a real deal. Good luck to all.

I found out I have a kidney stone. Before I found out I also started having dry eyes and my eye's won't produce much tears. I still have back pain, numbness on my lower back, and my spine is sensitive

Reoccurring calcium oxulate stones on regular basis
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I'm 19 and have been getting large kidney stones for the past few months now. I am curious as to see if the reason why I have been getting them, along with diverticulitis, is because of the types of birth control I have been taking. I took a depo-provera shot every 3 months for about 4 years, and started Sprintec about half a year ago. Are there any connections? I was thinking because the depo reduced calcium in my body, and that taking Sprintec caused a rush of calcium, that might be a reason.
