Well, I finally got around to watching the video and it's fascinating! Best of all, it also makes a lot of common sense, i.e. just kill the cancer not the whole prostate. I really hope this becomes a widespread option for those who are eligible. I have often said I would have chosen active surveillance if I had been a candidate. I think I'll revise that...I would prefer TFT which seems to be the best of both worlds, i.e. treat the cancer but avoid most of the sides.
Assuming your PSA stays relatively low, I gather biopsies are a thing of the past for you. However, if I understood the video correctly, if your PSA rises and if you have a recurrance, there is a possibility that the procedure could be repeated, i.e. just treating the cancer and not the whole gland. Is that correct?
Finally, I hope you will post that link for newbies who come here looking for advice. Even if they don't choose TFT as a therapy, they need to know the universe of possibilities before making a choice.
