you are right--i didn't do the survey correctly by failing to add a 3rd choice (i.e., neither of the tests were taken). therefore, i can't tell how many responded to the survey. however, because it does not appear to be working correctly at times, the poll has become kind of meaningless. it does not appear that i can edit the poll and add a 3rd choice. in fact, i can't even get the poll to show up as i originally set it up--it only shows how many have responded to each of the two items in the poll.
the comments posted, however, do indicate a trend (i.e., many doctors don't order these tests and i think we would like to know why).
68, Biopsy 9/27/06, Stage T1c, PSA 7.1, Gleason 6 [less than 5% in two areas], Gleason 7 (3+4) [less than 20% in third area], negative DRE, bone scan and MRI. Starting proton radiation therapy 2/22/07.
