Re: radiation and hormone therapy after RP

thanks for the info Allen. I contacted Mayo to get some info Bill's PSA is too low right now for the C-11 scan and if he were accepted into the program the treatment would have to be done there because the machine is so new there isn't many that can read the results to give treatment.
We met with the RO 9/26 he scheduled bone scan and CT for the 9th, wants to start HT the 10th pending results, and RT possibly the following week. This is all so fast! Urologist says get it while PSA is this low and RO says that that is a high #. We are not sure what to think. Do we have time to wait and see what happens with PSA? BTW Bill is 53, PSA 6.3, 4+3,7 and had positive margins. He has also been on 1/4 viagra daily since cath removed.
Should we only consider RT and then wait and see if HT is needed? We have an appt. w/urologist in between injection and bone scan the 9th to discuss HT trying to come up with questions...any suggestions?
