I have zero expertise on SRT (or much of anything, come to think of it), but really? What was the RO's reasoning if you don't mind me asking...
He thinks that .05 and the size of the margin says I got cancer. And, not to be cute...but....he thinks it needs to be cured. It's one man's opinion. But...this guy's no idiot. It's wild.....at these larger cancer centers....I think they can sometimes tell what's going on with ya just by looking at ya. It's wild.
Prato......I'm hearin' ya baby lol...I'm hearin' ya. But I've got this feeling like that deputy with one arm in Unforgiven who was bein' made fun of by his buddies for taking so many bullets to a gun fight with English Bob....who said....."I just don't wanna get shot fer lack 'a shootin' back". My side and back has hurt for a year and a half. That's what caused me to go check about
those cysts. It also caused me to have lipsotripsy on a stone. I also got a colonoscopy. All because I hurt and tryin' to stop it. Now we're lookin' at my lol my kidneys again. When people hurt....it makes ya think about
medicine more than is healthy to do. If I didn't hurt I don't think I'd be worryin' about
PSA like this....even though it's not the PCa that's causing me to hurt.
Native....I'm wondering about
the same thing. But these tests are more accurate I think post surgery than pre-surgery. One day...it was just by coincidence of scheduling....that I happened to have my PSA checked before surgery twice in on day at different offices. They were a point apart.
Weightloss....that's incredidble. You more about
this these machines than anyone I've ever met.
PSA 2010 thru 2014...4.0 +/- .7
Dx 12/14 @ 56 yo...2 cores G6 <5%, 1 core G6 20%, 1 core HGPIN.
RALP 11/25/15...3+4. 3 to 5 mm surgical margin 15% involvement pT2+
