Senior Sailor, The RO gave me the option of 6-7 months of ADT (Lupron) and I took it. I am 7 weeks into the ADT and 3 weeks into SRT. I discussed the 6800Gy over 34 treatments with him today and he insisted this is the way to go. He stated that the 200Gy per treatment is slightly higher than those receiving 7000+Gy (170-180Gy) and that little increase in Gy per dosage makes up for the overall dosage. I actually mentioned you guys to him and what you were receiving. I am still not sold, but this RO Dr. is a leader in treating PCa and he is the Chief RO at a nationally known Cancer Center here in Philly. I got no choice but to roll with it now. J
Looks like an excellent protocol!
Best wishes for a long knock-down, if not knock-out, of our foe.
