Topic: Photodynamic Therapy PDT in the USA

Hello all,

I saw this article earlier today when I was googling for CC -

http://www.philly.com/philly/health_and … 74882.html

I thought that it may be of interest to not only those of you in the US, but to anyone who is looking at or is interested in PDT and how it works. As a lot of you will know, PDT was my dads treatment in his fight against CC and a lot of what is talked about in this piece was what my dad experienced. The staying away from bright lights for several weeks, the wide rimmed hats, dark glasses and gloves, which are not mentioned, are all things my dad went through. And to be honest,  he had to do this for more than a few weeks, about 8 or so in total I think.

Anyway, I just though I would flag this article up as it does a pretty good job in my opinion of what PDT involves etc. As always, if anyone wants to ask me anything specific about my dads PDT experiences, then please just ask away and I will help if I can.

Best wishes,

Gavin
