Five years cancer free!
Five years ago at the age of 62 I had a routine blood test that indicated my PSA was elevated to the point that further tests would be required. I had no symptoms and felt normal. One risk factor that was important was that my father had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in his 60’s. After discussing the situation with my wife, we decided further investigation was warranted.
As a retired firefighter of 30 plus years I was well aware of the issue of prostate cancer as it had affected numerous friends that I had worked with. The majority had been less than satisfied with the treatment and results post-surgery. Incontinence and loss of sexual function seemed to be the norm. After numerous conversations with people I trusted I was really in a quandary as to how to proceed. Fortunately, I ran into a good buddy who is a retired police officer with the City of Long Beach. He had recently had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and had been referred to Dr. Pugach in Los Alamitos. Following his diagnosis and ultimate treatment he was ecstatic with the results. He was back to pretty much normal within a couple of months and most importantly cancer free.
I made the decision to put myself in the hands of Dr. Pugach and hope for the best. Five years later I am cancer free and have full sexual function, no incontinence and pretty much lead a normal life. HIFU was something I had never heard of but because of word of mouth from people I trusted I decided to give it a try. It worked and I have been very pleased with the results. Dr. Pugach and his staff have been exceptional. I highly recommend HIFU as a treatment option for prostate cancer. Dr. Pugach has an extensive history with HIFU and is considered one of the preeminent urologists in his field. He’s also a good guy.
