      Hello everybody,

      Only recently I found out Hansi Cross is not alive anymore... what sad news! I came to know that he died of cancer.

      Does anybody know if it was brain cancer? I think it's extremely important that we make sure laser therapy is safe and unrelated to cancer!

      Thank you.

      A strong supporter of Dr. Wilden's low-level laser therapy. Ever heard of it?

      Yes. Was he a member here?

      If he did get cancer from this I would speculate that it may have actually worked.

      I don't think he was a member here, nevertheless he was widely known thanks to his blog: http://www.progressrec.com/curing-tinnitus.html

      I spent some time and tried to research and come up with what type of cancer he had, because I'm interested in it myself. Unfortunately I was not able to obtain that information. I was thorough, I even read (with Google translate) a lot of the posts that were online made by him in Swedish, looking for the word cancer (in Swedish).

      There were some hits but none where he mentioned his type of cancer, he was just critical of the medical establishment or something. If somebody wants to try to do a better job at trying to find it you can try. His recovery with LLLT was very similar to mine, he started it when similar duration of time had passed since getting it and the way his spikes happened were similar etc. May he rest in peace.

      Do you recommend the LumoMed treatment? I inquired about the one in Florida. Kind of expensive if it doesn’t do anything. I only got one referral from them which is odd, especially if they treated about 100 people or so.

      I tend to agree with @Jan64, if your tinnitus has become chronic you can expect a much lesser improvement, if any improvement at all. I started treatment 3 months in with the Konftec device and have been very diligent with it for 1.5 years, that's why I have had very good results.

      I guess you've got to weigh the cost to benefit ratio, what are your resources and how much the money matters to you vs how much improvement you're hoping for. If your tinnitus is totally chronic and I was you, I'd try PRP in Korea or stem cells instead (I understand that they're more expensive), but that's just me. There's also value in the laser helping future spikes, if you were to get them.

      I'm inquiring about the PRP in India because it's cheaper.

      I see the Dr. replied back to me. I need to send my audiogram etc. to them.

      Thank you! So would you recommend LLLT? What laser did you use?

      I would but like I said, only in the acute phase(3 months or less ideally, the sooner the better, post 6 months it becomes quite ineffective imo) and you need to commit to doing it for years plus weather the first "storm" or spike of tinnitus that usually happens. The exact model I've been using is Konftec emLas 520BCB.
