Hi everyone, went to see the Radiation Onocologist yesterday, he said obviously that some cells have been left behind after the surgery, he said in his experience the remaining cells usually are located in the prostate bed, and has recommended a 6weeks daily course of radiation to that area, he also gave me a 70% chance of killing all the cells in that area.
Sooo...here we go on another leg of this journey...wish me luck.
