At the age of 55, in apparent perfect health and with 21 years of professional practice, I was diagnosed with a Paraneoplastic Syndrome, behind which was hidden an advanced Prostate Adenocarcinoma Gleason 9, non-surgical. In 4 years and after 42 cessions of chemotherapy every 21 days, a protocol for three months that did not work, and radiotherapy, there was nothing left to try but to continue with more chemotherapy.
When I found out about the Lutetium treatment, I did not care that it was impossible. I gathered 70000 signatures in a few days, the scientist behind this treatment, the radiochemist who prepares the medication in Argentina, and the lawyers who, together with the reasoning of a judge, made the impossible possible.
I focused and visualized lutetium diagnosing, irradiating, and eliminating every neoplastic cell in my body. After three doses and observing the scans using gamma camera and the last PET PSMA without evidence of neoplastic focus in activity, tears of happiness ran on my cheeks and on all of those who believed in me and helped unconditionally.
Today I lead a group of patients with prostate cancer in treatment with lutetium. I am eternally grateful to the scientists who discovered the usefulness of this radionuclide, to the Oncidium foundation and to my treating physician Dr. María Bastianello whose humanity and dedication
surprises me every day.
