Meeting Facilitator George Johnson led a lively discussion at the July 2013 IPCSG monthly meeting. The group participate in an open exchange of experiences and results.
A growing number our members are delaying immediate invasive treatment and are instead participating in Active Surveillance which involves changes in diet and increased exercise while closely monitoring PSA levels. Results are very favorable. Only a small number have had follow up invasive treatment. One of our members gave a good example of his four years of successfully delaying treatment and his plans for continued monitoring with frequent PSA tests and occasional biopsies.
