I had 26 treatments - Hypo fractioned of IM/IGRT while taking Bilcalutimide (Casodex)for six months! I know it is bit different from your question but the Hypo fractioned treatment in conjunction with HT/ADT seems to be MSKCC protocol for lower risk patients!
Also Fairwind, I am not sure if I 100% agree with your assessment. Your broad statement about
the entire industry does not represent the opinions of all hospitals and RO's. My RO was always looking for 5 treatments and only used 26 treatment - IMRT due to my enlarged prostate. My RO does SBRT 90+% of the time unless there are over variables that prevent him from using this RT!
G7 3+4 - 5% "4" - on 2nd BX 2/26, initially G6 3 + 3 on 11/17
1 core of 16 - 35% involvement, confirmed by MSKCC
MRI 2/19 - 1 core PI-RAD-2, Prostate size 73cc, IMRT/IGRT - 7/18, 26 treatments
