Yes, proton is being used quite a bit for surgery salvage with very good results. I have referred one gent to Loma Linda with a rising PSA after surgery. He is doing quite well. If you go to www.protonbob.com and click on Patient Testimonials, the 9th, 14th and 43rd are from men who had surgery first. I think one has an email address where he can be reached.
