While "his" MO might be a good one, I would ask your GP for a referral to see an MO HE recommends...At the same time, ask him to refer you to a RO also. Your husband can still be cured and die from a heart attack when he is 90.... Even if a cure is not achieved, he will still be around a lot longer than 5 years..Also, get a hard copy of that pathology report from your Uro...
Since some of the cancer was left behind, radiation treatment, called salvage radiation treatment or SRT will probably be in his near future. If you live in a large city, there will most certainly be a facility (maybe a hospital) that has the latest radiation administering equipment installed. These machines are called LINACS. It's worth traveling to be treated with the newest, up to date equipment and by an RO who is also up to date with his treatment techniques..A lot has changed over the last 6 to 8 years..
If you have not read "Surviving Prostate Cancer" by Dr. Pat Walsh now would be a good time to do so....Best of luck to you both..
