Steve, great report and I'm happy you are doing so well. While I ultimately ended up with brachy, PBT was a serious contender with me and during the past three years since my treatment I have continued to hear good things about
The only hesitation I had when I made my decision was that (at that time) much of the great news about PBT seemed to be anecdotal.
