Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle has a great comprehensive prostate cancer clinic. They arrange a meeting with a nutritionalist, sexual function specialist, radiation oncologist, and surgeon. There you will recieve plenty of information to help make up your decision on treatment. Additional research on the internet and this forum will help greatly.
I personally decided on the Da vinci robotic surgery. While I must admit to being nervous about my surgery next week, I'm confident that this is the best procedure for me. I've been working at loosing a few pounds, practicing my Kegals, and at age 57 will be able to recover completely.
Good luck in your search for your method of treatment.
