I am not sure we are allowed such posts or if they are considered advertising. However, I felt this may be an interesting read for those who are faced with so many treatment options. Don't know if it measures up to Dr. Walsh.  I have not read this book.

Walsh's book is not the holy bible of PCa.

While good it's becoming dated IMHO

At 50 bucks for 95 pages I would say that this is commercial rip-off rather than scientific reporting.

JH should be ashamed for preying on the sick
Age at diagnosis 66, PSA 5.5
Biopsy 12/08 12 cores, 8 positive

Pathology: Lymph nodes & Seminal vesicles negative
Margins positive, Capsular penetration extensive Gleason 4+3=7
6 weeks: 1 pad/day, 1 pad/night -- mostly dry at night.
10 weeks: no pad at night -- slight leakage day/1 pad.
3 mo. PSA 0.0 - now light pads
6 mo. PSA 0.00 -- 1 light pad/day
9 mo. PSA 0.00 -- 1 light pad/day ED remains
12 mo. PSA 0.00 -- still one light pad and ED
16 mo PSA 0.00 -- light pad just for security, ED still an issue
