Ok so I only got brief details from my mom on the phone earlier but she said the appt with the radiologist went really well. He said radiation is a go but only as a preventative measure and even if it wasn't treated at all my dad would "statistically" live for at least another 13 years. In order to live a long life he needs to be treated with radiation and hormone therapy. Still no leaking going on either which is a good thing! I realize this is probably little info ( I plan to call my dad later) but nonetheless good to know! Been reading about everyone else and you are all in my thoughts.
Take care,

Kelli, as I'm 13 years older than your dad I can vouch for wanting a whole lot more than 13, or 26, or 36, or ... whatever. So, good news he's being treated and I'll be watching for more news after you've spoken to your dad.
