I am truly saddened to bring you this disappointing but important news. In the following posts, I will present evidence that casts doubts on Dr. Georgiadis’ intentions. To be honest, as a PFS victim my bias was in favor of Dr. Georgiadis. Like many of you, I anxiously anticipated the feedback from our fellow board members who have already left in pursuit of a cure for our problems. I remained quiet but inquisitive on the matter, waiting for more concrete evidence to make a judgement on the validity of Dr. Georgiadis’ proposed solution. Unfortunately, I have found evidence that proves his behavior is at best highly unqualified. It is obviously important to remain critical and I hope you will DISCUSS and not ARGUE about these findings in this thread. I personally feel that what I have found delegitimizes his claims. I don’t want this thread to turn into an I-TOLD-YOU-SO thread because honestly each man that went to Greece risked his own time, finances, and state of hope to benefit not only themselves but provide valuable information to the rest of us. As an exception, SolonJK has some SERIOUS explaining to do regarding his recent erratic behavior and why he literally said that Georgiadis’ had the potential to be a god for us. After being questioned on his behavior, he has refused to provide an explanation for why he chose to delete all of his past post history when it would provide useful information to the rest of us. At the very least, his premature worship of Dr. Georgiadis unnecessarily inflated the hopes of those in the PFS community and I would not be surprised if he is involved in more questionable activities. Additionally, I sent the claims to several of the credible PFS doctors and perhaps the most relevant and respected docto declared off-the-bat that our problems are not the result of an inflammatory issue. Lastly, another respected doctor I have been seeing told me that the TRUS technology is not very useful in detecting infections but it is more helpful in detecting things like prostate cancer and cysts. This fact would prevent one from even speculating on such a matter by email, but Dr. Georgiadis has offered up-front diagnoses.
Explanation of the Evidence - As I was a bit skeptical, I felt it would be a good idea to create a pseudo email address and send Dr. G an email with an edited version of my backstory with a picture of a completely healthy prostate that I found online. The result of our interaction will be displayed in the next post. The picture I used was from the following website which displays an undeniably healthy prostate.
After he responded with a dubious explanation, I gave him the benefit of the doubt and felt it would be appropriate to investigate further. I rationalized - perhaps he couldn’t see the picture clearly and was basing the experience off his work with PFS patients. I decided to follow up with an additional pseudo email account. This time I chose a scenario where the problems were unambiguously NOT related to the prostate. For the second email, I created a scenario where I was recently put on SSRIs and had mild sexual side effects which are very common to SSRI use (about 30-50% of SSRI users get them). Again, the pictures I presented were from the following link and are very clearly an example of a healthy prostate. Minimally, the obvious thing he should have suggested was to stop the drug for a few days or switch to a different medication, but he immediately jumped to the conclusion that I had chronic prostatitis which required an entire month of treatment and told me to fly out to Greece for his care.
In conclusion, I believe these emails demonstrate that Georgiadis dispensed dishonest medical advice since he has literally diagnosed everyone (including healthy prostates) with chronic prostatitis. Please do not engage in infighting as in the last thread and I truly hope that Solonjk will give an explanation of his questionable behavior soon.
