Quality Life in The Face of Cancer (Adenocarcinoma Prostate - 2002)
For 71-year-old George (name changed) voiding urine was bit of a mountain to climb for the past one year when he met me on a rather busy OP day in 2002. He told me that it took a while for the urine to flow and once started there was no interruption. The difficulty manifested only during the forenoon hours. Post noon and during night there was no hassle. He was also unable to pass urine in the presence of others.
He had inguinal hernia, which receded on lying down.
He had pain in the right knee while ascending and descending stairs.
He developed urticaria after taking curd or after cold bath. His cold and cough usually lasted long.
He was Diabetic and under allopathic treatment.
Appetite – normal
Likes to have warm food and drinks
His brother suffered from Squamous cell carcinoma – lung.

This was a diagnosed case of Adenocarcinoma – prostate. There was no peri-prostatic spread and a whole body bone scinti imaging was negative for skeletal metastasis. I started treatment with Natrum mur 30, increasing the potency to 1M, after observing the peculiar symptom of his inability to pass urine in the presence of others as well as his excessive craving for salt. Conium is the chief medicine to be thought of in prostate problems, especially in old age. It was given to him later in 30 to 10M potencies and that gave him a lot of relief. Miasmatically, Thuja, from 200 to 10M potencies, was also prescribed. He was under my treatment for almost six years. Other medicines given symptomatically are tabulated as above. For some time, he was unable to urinate without simultaneously moving the bowels, which was completely cured with Muriatic acid in 30 potency. Hepar sulp 200 to 1M potencies took care of his difficulty to start urinating, with feeble stream. His urgency to urinate with incontinence was cured by Kreosote. He was improving progressively, when, on 25-05-2008, unfortunately he died in an accident.
George was the brother of one of my patients, who had Squamous cell carcinoma – lung. He had strong faith in Homoeopathy, after witnessing the improvement of his brother's condition. He was highly disciplined and followed my instructions meticulously. The whole family had immense faith in Homoeopathy from their own experiences.
During the six years of treatment, he got relief from all his complaints. He owned a quarry and was leading a hard and active life. He could muster all the energy required, to lead a strenuous life. But unfortunately, in February 2008, when he was working in his quarry, he slipped and fatally hit his head on a big rock.
