Whoa, Guys give it a break
A good part of me says just stay outta this. But I feel compelled to get involved.
We are all here because we share a common bond, we got dealt a crapty card.
Lets try to just give Aachen some constructive guidence towards the information he seeks.
Aachen I chose Brachy/IMRT because I DECIDED that was the right choice for me. This game is a lot like politics. If you are looking for information guiding you towards any particular therapy it is out there.
I think we all make the decision that makes the most sense to us. After which guys get their feathers ruffled when someone tries to tell them they made the wrong choice and their decision was better.
Make the decision that makes the most sense to you and be confident in your treatment.
Bottom line is we all make a decision and hope for the best!
