The question is if radiation or surgery is being considered. I read a book that has some excellent treatment advice for hormone therapy and cancer like your fathers. It was written by a Dr. Snuffy Myers called: "Beating Prostate Cancer:Hormonal Therapy and Diet". I highly recommend that reading. Knowledge will help immensly. I have advanced disease and I am doing well. I am very positive and you should stay positive. Are you a son or a daughter?
And may God bless you and your father.
