Greetings, Jerry B. Welcome to the forum. You will hear many thoughts here about which treatment is best. My opinion is that there are many "best" treatments depending on your facts and circumstances. You are doing exactly the right thing in trying to get as much information as you can and then making a decision that is right for you. We are all willing to help in any way we can but ultimately the decision comes down to you, your spouse and your health care provider.
Sorry you have to be here but welcome! David
