Thanks John. I know i am very early in my "delayed adjuvaent", or "early SRT" tx plan, but if I am going to do it, I want to do it right.
Obviously, we have no proof of PC in the prostate bed either but we are taking an educated guess. What Snuffy said made so much sense. Isn't it just another educated guess that if cells have migrated, that they would end up in the nodes ?
David, i am hoping to not look back and say should we have ? Not sure I can convince the rad guy, but I intend tom try.
This really is great site to be able to just ask dumb questions.
