Thanks Brother Jeff,
This reminds me of where I was 10 years ago undergoing neck/throat radiation treatments, I am having to talk myself into not cancelling a treatment session, because if I do, they will only tack it onto the end. It's hard sometimes to do something like this, when you are already wiped out physically,and you know its going to make you more wiped out and sore.
Not superman, Jeff, more like stupid man, lol. It's weired sometimes, sure this is true for all of us PC brothers, that we go through all we go through, i.e. major surgeries, radiations, etc, side effects, complications, all because a piece of paper says we have cancer.
Like most here, had no symptons, never felt a thing, squeaky clean DRE-s the entire time. It's weird thinking that if it hadn't' been for multiple PSA tests over the years, and then multiple biopsies, I would be in the bliss of ignorance, and not have a clue that I had a raging beasing on the loose inside my body.
I will say this sentiment again, I sure hope this SRT proves itself in eradicating the remnants of my PC. I would hate to think that I will have used up both my "big guns" of primary and secondary treatment in a years time.
Looking at your stats again, I hope you get to say with the string of zero's you have started. BTW, not to nit pick, but use to proof reading, why does your stat stay GS 3+3=7, even you cajuns know how to add, lol. Is yours a six 3+3 or a seven. You may want to correct it so it doesnt confuse any of our new friends.
