...well, I know Terra Haute is a lot like Marion....and I promise making the trip to Indy would be the best bet. If you've been lurking long on the site you may have noticed some of the guys have/will travel across the country to see the most qualified Doctor in their eyes for the treatment they've decided on. We're very lucky to have in our region some very qualified Dr's offering different treatments for PCa. With that said, you have plenty of time it looks to do your research and decide on the treatment you desire. Like so many here told me, read, study and do it some more. Knowledge of what it is we're dealing with is so important, as well as our attitudes going in. We're all different and will make our own selections based on our own needs and knowledge. Talk to your doctors, ask them how long, how many....ask for names of former patients. Let us know how it goes and good luck in your search.
