I was devastated when I received my prostate cancer diagnosis and felt that my GP didn’t explain all the treatment options available to me. When I learned that the waiting time for treatment on the NHS was going to be at least three months, and that the conventional radiotherapy offered to me in the UK would take 36 weeks for treatment, I decided to research further options. I found the Proton Therapy Center in Prague after my own internet research and was impressed because it was much less likely that I would suffer from side effects.
I was treated in March 2016, with treatment taking just over four weeks. The treatment took place every day for about fifteen minutes and I was free to enjoy Prague for the rest of the day as I was not suffering from any significant side effects. I was happy with my experience at the clinic, it was painless and with very understanding nurses, I felt at ease.
I am able to enjoy life now, knowing that I am fully treated and don’t suffer from any side effects from proton therapy. My son lives in Thailand with his Thai wife, and my wife and I divide our time between West Sussex in the summer and Thailand in the winter. There is nothing that I can’t do now that I could before the treatment. I recommend proton therapy because it can cure the problem quickly and painlessly with minimal problems afterwards.
