In another thread Gary said:
But for the age (my DX was at age 56) our situations are somewhat similar. After salvage RT shortly after my surg I was clear for five years. I am now in an ADT "off" period, feeling good in spite of serious ADT weight gain, knocking on wood.
Best wishes!

Hi Gary.
I'm interested in the details of how things went between surgery and ADT. How long was the interval between surgery and salvage? Did your PSA stay undetectable for years after salvage, or did it creep up slowly?
