Good for you Fallcrop,
And thank you for sharing. You keep us posted on your progress. I think you went a great rout and hopefully you will have similar success that I have enjoyed with that combination. Surgery with adjuvant radiation therapy has shown to perform as well as any other form of therapy in intermediate/high risk cases. The Harvard/Stanford ART study is approaching the median of 9 years with excellent results (highest Level 1 ART study trial results I have yet seen).
Good luck and may many zeroes come your way.
