I have a slightly different interpretation of post surgery pathology. You state that "...knowing for sure what is going on." I don't believe, strictly speaking, that is totally correct even though some surgeons would have you believe that. True, you know more definitive info than from the biopsy but you never know "for sure"....otherwise why would you and others be worried about upcoming PSA tests?
I point this out only because jbm is seriously considering another protocol and I want to make sure he doesn't think surgical info is totally definitive.
By the way, I know your zero is coming early next week and I'm waiting to hear the good news!!!
