The University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center is doing a nationwide clinical trial on radiation treatment for prostate cancer and asked me to be a part of it. There is no marginal benefit to me but it may be useful to those coming after me so after much consideration I agreed. One group will receive the standard treatment of radiation (7 weeks), the other will receive the shorten version (5 weeks) at a higher dosage. Its random so I won't know which group I will be in. In talking to my oncologist he mentioned that the rate that my PC is growing that it would pose a considerable danger to me in 30 years, that I could conceivably forgo any treatment but it may begin to increase much faster in the coming years. So my bone scan and CT scans are scheduled for next week. They decided to forgo the hormone shots so here it goes. Glad to bypass those bad boys. My brother also has PC and is receiving the shots and he is not fond of them. I thought about
winging it and doing nothing but it could also begin to rise at a faster rate. So I better spin the wheel and hit it hard now.
