    Very true, and excellent job of staying with it. We must self advocate, and not accept poor, uninformed, or just lazy physicians. "Ruthless persistence" :up: :up: I love it.

    As usual, excellent search, Jarad. I will read though many of those sources, as they may pertain to my persistent PSA, even right after SRT. I suspect radiation didn't eradicate the entire tumor.

    I hope you're seeing a 'good' Urologist, not some general internist, or family doctor.

    Good luck!

    Well said, Another. Your opinions are well explained, thought out, and valuable.

    Sometimes what is called "strongly opinionated", can be a euphemism for really being misguidedly judgemental. ;)
