    After two tours in Vietnam, surgery in 1996-1999, repeat, radiation
    and hormone therapy, I became well versed with it…Then as Vietnam
    Veterans of America, Agent Orange (AO) Chairman Chapter 751 Lawton
    OK, and National AO Chairman 2004-2008, working in the Chapter
    both before and after, and still at it today… I’m always looking for new
    and up-to-date info to pass to my fellow Veterans; so if you have
    anything please send it…Thanks for what you do it is appreciated…

    Bratchey therapy with Professor Hoskins at Mt Vernon Hospital UK. Really works minimal side effects even stage three. Good risk of being rid of it. I would take two Cialis a week through the treatment and strontium renelate whilst on hormone deprivation. After six months Casodex
    Bicamitulide 150 mg is just fine with tolerable side effects.
    Controle breasts with radiation and tamoxifen 20mg if painfull.
