I am one of those who had radiation while below .1
My surgery confirmed that I had local mets. There was risidual disease left behind. I had surgery to attack what was on the other side of the knife. My oncologist said he doubted that this would do any good as studies showed I was headed torwards a likely relapse. But it was my cann to hit the area with radiation. Some studies are being done that are showing that we did the right thing.
