Prostate Cancer Navigation:
Ahoy! You don’t have to go it alone Mate!
Every ship needs a navigator to guide them through treacherous waters. Your Survivor-Ship is no different. Your cancer diagnosis requires you to sail in uncharted waters. You can trust a cancer navigator with 45 years’ experience who has chartered the way forward for thousands of patients before you.
The Grace Gawler Institute offers various levels of prostate cancer navigation services.
We suggest beginning with a video call to ascertain your needs and how we can best help you.
We exist to help you make the best choices:
The Grace Gawler Institute’s point of difference in helping you manage and recover from prostate cancer is our unique, dedicated and personalised approach aimed at minimising “normal” treatment side effects such as radiation fibrosis, incontinence, bowel issues and erectile dysfunction and of course, attending to the psychological impact of your diagnosis. The latter can go unaddressed for years causing significant depression and emotional trauma.
Cure? Some prostate cancers are cured by radiation and surgery; but this often comes at a cost; lifelong side effects diminish life quality and often place significant relationships under continual duress.
When prostate cancer is first diagnosed, my 45 years’ experience informs me that it is important for you, the patient, and your partner to do due diligence regarding what to expect after treatment. You need to seriously consider likely side effects – both short term and long term before treatment commences. It is a risk vs benefits equation and you need to be comfortable with having had your questions answered adequately and any potential outcomes discussed in depth.
The Grace Gawler Institute over many years has formed a network of national and international specialists who can provide you with innovative minimally invasive options, including options to avoid bowel damage during any required radiation therapy.
Our colleagues can provide you with a second or third opinion; then you can make a Health Restoration Plan with the help and guidance of your personalised Cancer Navigator.
How to Proceed:
Arrange a video consultation with our therapeutic director, Grace Gawler, who will assist you to design your health restoration plan – click here.
