    I was going to ask what you gain by delaying Salvage Radiation Therapy (SRT)

    SouthSider said you delay side-effects and cost. Both of those statements are true. However, delaying cost does not...

    I respect your point of view. I think the choices you placed before you might not be accurate, however. I had laparoscopic prostate surgery with a Gleason 8 15 years ago. I did have a rough 2 days...

    Thanks for the post. These things always interest me and while they might or might not help, they are risk-free things we can do on top of whatever the medical community has to offer.

    Just my gut feeling but why would you get another biopsy?

    Even with half your cores positive at 56, I would proceed. Add to that the mass that could make the situation even more urgent, it seems...

    I too think minor fluctuations in numbers that low are meaningless and could even be noise in the test. They certainly are nothing you could ever use to estimate a doubling time. Has anyone ever...
