Six week PSA < 0.1 , 4 month PSA <.05 Gen II test.  Urologist recomends to hold off on Radiation and watch PSA closely. Oncologist and Radiation Oncologist seem to lean to doing pre-emptive radiation.Uroligist says 50/50 chance of PSA re-occurence.  
I have decided to hold off and see for 3 months.

Great job!
I see the US has approved it's HIFU program and has open enrollment in clinical trials.  Slow process for the FDA but they finally got it going!

I have put the site below:

Again, great results, I think you can stay 'focused' on staying well now ~ pardon the pun!
