Excellent advise above, KB. You are asking the right questions and will be visiting excellent physicians.
In talking to RO's, discuss their techniques for ADT. It's usually not a topic they voluntarily bring up, and it causes more side effects that either surgery or straight radiation. BTW, the aforementioned RO, Dr. King at UCLA, is tops.
While surgery is no 'gold standard, Dr. Patrick Walsh's well balanced text, 'Surviving Prostate Cancer, 4th Edition', certainly is. I've had both surgery and radiation, and his book, some call the Prostate Bible, explores both in scientific detail..
IMO, this is in stark contrast to Dr. Scholz' (phrase deleted) books, 'Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers' and 'The Key to Prostate Cancer'. (sentences deleted)
Good luck on your journey.
Gary, I edited your post a bit and ask that you re-phrase if you want to make your point (although KB probably already saw it and your point was made). Our site owner recently received a "cease and desist" order and threat to sue from a doctor who felt disparaged on the HW site. It was on another forum but the moderators have been asked to be particularly sensitive to criticism about
specific doctors. Trust you understand. Thanks, Jim
