Seankc, Pray your surgery went well. I had the RALP done in Nov 2015 and went well and just finished my series of Radiation and so far so good. Reason for the Radiation AFTER surgery was that my PSA didn't come back as 'undetectable' which indicates there were some cells that had escaped. So the regime of LUPRON HT along with the radiation was the proposed followup plan.
I will add some more details if you would like later but as you can see there are lots of acronyms and abbeviations on these threads and did not know if yo had seen the list when you first joined. in case you didn't here is the link to it. Kind of like interpreting a foreign language.
Here is also another lnk to a new study just release on surgery vs radiatoin - just an FYI - it is on the "RESOURCES TAB" on the top of the forum site page.
