I will be seeing Dr. Hussein at Umich on Nov 1st. She is a top-notch medical oncologist specializing in PC. One of the reasons for this appointment is to get the latest information and map out a plan. HT/SRT combo is one of my questions.
I suspect the answer will be no HT, given my very low PSA.
In fact, I am hoping they do NOT do a PSA test for this appointment. My next one is scheduled for 12/21. I'll probably do that one 2 weeks later in time for my next appointment at Ford on 1/7/11.
I'm afraid if they do it on Nov. 1st. it will tell me for sure that the game is up (regarding BCR). I would prefer to be in ignorance for a few more months!
