We do have a member whose husband had salvage surgery, which is also called debulking, but in New York. Her screen name is divo. I believe if you do a member search, her email address is enabled to view. Diane is her name and she is very kind. She can give you some insight at least about
the procedure and how her husband Pete is doing.
I would imagine that a great surgeon does well in all the types of surgeries he does. Because this is a prostatectomy, the surgeon who does one best is likely to perform well for a tumor debulking procedure. So if anyone from the Provinces kak has listed with normal surgical experience there, is looking on, please speak up.
