Everyone has every option they choose to exercise.
Even though HIFU is not approved for prostate cancer treatment here in the US it is still a recognized procedure in may countries and you can avail youself of it if you decide it is the best treatment for you. And many insurance companies do cover the cost of treatment including mine Golden Rule through United Health Care.
And to put my post into context, we are talking about
a man who has already had IMRT which makes him a poor prospect for surgery or Cryo, I am simply putting it out there.
Interesting that you focused negatively on HIFU which is really incidental to this discussion and made no comment to the main issue which is whether Chuck has a local recurrance or not.
And BTW, I have been examined and biopsied by a HIFU specialist and am prepared to have a HIFU proceedure should my particular condition warrant.
Sorry that your thread was hijacked Chuck
