I'm very sorry to hear of the loss of you best friend, NY-Sooner.
Leukemia is specifically one of the cancers that has been associated
with high dose radiation therapy for prostate cancers.
(or even statistical correlation
) is not causation.
There really is no way to prove
beyond a doubt they were directly connected. I suspect your question was rhetorical, anyway.
I hope that you won't also mind, NY-Sooner, me pointing out (for the benefit of newcomer and/or future readers of this thread) the sad reality of this instance possibly being linked to aggressive, possibly "elective," (over-)treatments for 3+3 cases which often (you didn't provided enough details to fully assess, and we don't have to go there now) need no treatment at all.
