Haha it would be funny if a trip to Holland would be cheaper! I spent a lot of time there when I was working and love the Dutch people. Dattoli has referred me to Bravo. Dattoli seems very knowledgeable in all aspects of PCa having been a surgeon and a RO and MO.
Cost aside, the real issue is if nodes are involved can he radiate them without SEs and cure the PCa or as a Gleason 9 is it simply too aggressive and already way out of the barn?
He said the RP is very messy and bloody and escaping blood carries PCa cells . He also said its a lot worse with Robotic surgery which has high degree of complications and BCR. That surprised me.
I'll talk to Dattoli's nurse today to get more info on Bravo's procedure and cost although it's spelled out pretty comprehensively on his web site. BTW, my pet scan was F18, not C11! I need to change my sig.
