Mutation Of Prostate Cancer Thanks To Ao

Question

I been going to MD Anderson cancer center in Houston. This place is city in it self and over 22,000 cancer outpatience everyday and even has nice hotel and bar :rolleyes: . I Started going to MD a year ago and the DOC's explain to me about psa cell's and its mutation cell's. From the psa cancer cell it can and will mutation to another type cancer like brain, lung, bone, bladder, etc. Thanks again AO!:angry: It move from the prostate to the Lymph nodes which there are 1000's of LN thru out the body. If you do not have a prostate and your psa is going up. Seek help!The androgen deprivation therapy shot work for me for about six months, it should of lasted for years in most case. Oh but not me :wacko: . My psa cancer is mutating to another form and it's to small see. They started a different hormone to hope it will slow it down.

My point is to all VET's please get your prostate check every year.

PS that goes for all Vet's!

SP4:

Thanks for the heads up I am sure it could help another Veteran. MD Andersen is one of the best so I believe that you are getting good treatment. My prayers for your recovery.

Been without mine now since June 15 2009 due to Agent Orange. It really changes your life and the way you do things. It is good to know these things because you do not hear a lot from the VA. I will keep a close check since you let us know about the mutation even after the cancer surgery and they say you are cancer free.

I so much ask! I feel that change in the way I do thing and it not good. I hope you are seeing somebody beside Va. They act like it's ok to have little PSA. VA have said don't remove prostate with high counts. WRONG. MY MD Anderson Doctor's said if you don't have a prostate then .1 or .2 psa count means that you have possible cancer and you should watch it every 6 to 8 weeks. You should seek a doctor that specialist in Urology or your primary doctor for psa test.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
