I think its 13 weeks post open RP now and just finished day 2 of 36 days of RT. After surgery my PSA never got over 0.09, Tested at 10 and 12 weeks but my surgeon and Oncologist still said RT was needed due to my post-op path report. I wonder how they will measure the effectiveness of the RT? Isn't 0.09 really like nonexistent? Should I have insisted they wait?
There seems to be so much controversy concerning treatment for this cancer.
