Hi, I wanted to provide an update from a fellow G9'r. I am undetected as of Oct 2017! I'm coming up on 4 years since surgery and I've been off of Lupron since June of 2015. With all my positive margins etc. I kind of keep expecting a PSA rise when I go for testing every 4 months. But so far nothing! Maybe the aggressive treatment of surgery, ADT & radiation was right for me. I can't argue with these results. If I had known I was a T3b prior to surgery I'd probably gone with ADT & radiation only but the biopsy said T1a so surgery was recommended by urologist and the tumor board. I'm very thankful for these results and this site! Thanks to all of you for your contributions. I come here often.
All right there Don! May that PSA stay down in the dirt!
