That comes from the Decipher GRID PORTOS report......
My main concern going into SRT is actually the Lower RT response (45%). I asked my RO about it and he does not put any stock in this info at all. I guess that could change over time as more and more data is loaded in the Decipher database.
True, but there is a tremendous amount a validated data there already.
I suggest your RO's opinion may be short sighted. The Decipher GRID reports have an enormous amount of data to sift through. The free GRID reports can be sent directly to you from Decipher, and you can call them to clarity any portion of the report. May of us find it most valuable, especially in an area where hard data is so hard to come by.
Just in the last 18 months, ADT medical thinking about
the value of when to get it, and how much it improves the odds of a successful outcome have made significant strides. It's yet another very foggy area with no absolute answers. In my experience, many (most?) busy RO clinicians are not as current as we would hope, and that includes 'celebrity' physicians.
Do your own in-depth research on these critical personal decision points. Don't rely on one RO's opinion, or second hand, possibly old, information online.
Good luck, Jay!
