    Red face One of the longest living metastatic PCa survivors turned 80 yrs. old~ Dr. Lee

    His friend Dr. Bob B. here in Michigan spoke at a PCa group seminar last night and mentioned that Dr. Lee in now 80 yrs. old, still works at his office 2 dates a week, color doppler sonographer, past inventor of cryo therapy surgery.
    I had Dr. Bob repeat it, 25 yrs. with known mets all along...seems like a possible record in PCa circles and still living and working. He also used or still uses emcyt drug to control his PCa, how many use this??? It works!
    My onco-doc is also friends with Dr. Lee over the years and confirmed the drug he has used.

    You can read his PCa story and find it on google: search Dr. Fred Lee prostate cancer story http://rochesterurology.urologydomai...drleestory.cfm
    Congratulations to a man whom still makes a difference in PCa.

    In early cryo days they actually used some meat thermometers to monitor tempuratures, this came from my onco-doc whom knows Dr. Lee, before moving to better equipment. (go figure)

    One survives..How many do not survive regardless of the treatments and therapies they try..How about if Dr. Lee posts his PSA numbers from the beginning until today?

    My husband & I had the pleasure of meeting Dr Lee in the last 3 months, Its very hard to believe he is 80 yrs old!!! He doesnt look it or act it! My husband had 2 appts. since June. Dr Lee sees patients on Wed and sometimes Thursdays. He has a calmness and serenity about him that is very assuring, very professional yet he has a very easy manner with patients,that combined with years of experience makes him a wonderful doctor!!!!

    The correct weblink has now been added into the first thread post at the top and working. Read the story.
    Maybe emcyt needs some more people trying it, I don't think a man with this much knowledge on PCa, flipped a coin and came up with something way different than Lupron useage. So question everything along your own journey.
