Denis, I think something frequently gets missed in the conversations about AS: getting aggressive treatment after "X" amount of time does not constitute failure of AS. It simply says that those patients indicated progression and were appropriately treated.
Might I suggest that you pick one AS protocol that both you and your Uro are ok with, and follow it and see what happens. Figure out what your trigger point for aggressive treatment is, and if you arrive there, THEN decide what treatment to take. Who knows, maybe some new and better treatment will come online between now and then.
Halbert very well put. I never thought delayed intervention was a failure. Sure we would all love to live decades and died from something holding someone we loved. Put another way is we live to 125 we will all have this cancer, as I understand it.
I am very confident in my Uro and Yale's approach to AS. Again I am very appreciative of the dialog we all have on this and other forums. We clearly have a vested interest to learn from each other.
Back to the rewire job on my 1952 pickup! My wife picked out the the license plate and it says "oldboy"
not sure if it is the truck or me? Denis
