Just as an "aside" , this thread reminds me of my meeting with Dr David Samadi, when, in my "infinite wisdom", 3 days after I was diagnosed, asked him if I should go on hormone therapy until I have surgery. Seems almost funny now to ask that with my diagnosis of what we thought was G6 at the time.
His response was very animated... "NO, NO, NO, DONT DO THAT!!! It will make your prostate all sticky and will make it very difficult to remove"
I guess that was part of his marketing approach.
