Re: Salvage radiation after Hormone Therapy?

Hi Daff,

Proton beam radiation sounds like the way to go, rather than concentrated x-rays. However, I don't know if that is available in my area, but I will be finding out in the near future.

I may seem like I'm asking a lot of questions at this point in time, when I haven't yet had my second psa test to see if in fact my cancer is returning. It's just that I know that being in the category of 8-10 Gleason is not a nice place to be and these cancers can be very aggressive and persistent. Time will tell.........Lionel
