Thomas’ Prostate Cancer Story

My symptoms for prostate cancer came all at once, I had to be taken to hospital as I couldn’t urinate but the diagnosis was very concerning for me. I suddenly found it very hard to sleep and concentrate, it didn’t help that I felt I wasn’t give enough information about all the treatments available.

The NHS offered me hormone therapy then subsequently radiotherapy; the hormone therapy began rather quickly but I was put off the radiotherapy due to its side effects so I started researching other treatments.

I came across proton therapy online and it indicated that the side-effects would be greatly reduced so I decided to go ahead with it. My treatment lasted 21 fractions and I found the Proton Centre to be very professional, caring and I was attended to promptly each time I attended the clinic, which would have been different with the NHS.

During the treatment I did experience a slight looseness of the bowels at times, but overall I thought the treatment was excellent with a high standard of professionalism and care in place that made me feel at ease during the whole process.

My health at the minute is fine and I feel like I’m back to normal- when I look at my future it looks very positive.
