Re: Salvage radiation after Hormone Therapy?

Hi all - I had prostate surgery in 1999 - PSA 6.4, Gleason 7. In 2003 it rose to 0.1. It moved slowly for the next 4 years but in 2007 it was at 0.7 and my doctor believing that residual cancer was in the bed of the prostate recommended radiation. I opted for this rather than homonal therapy. I went to City of Hope in California and had 36 treatments with Tomo Therapy. It has been about a year and 5 months since the procedure and I am at <0.1. The side effects of Tomo therapy are very minimal and would recommend this procedure to anyone.
