Re: A little concerned

Just got injected for the bone scan this afternoon. I met with a dr yesterday. He is a surgeon. He mentioned that they all have the same cure rates. Basically it comes down to this, side effects. He did mention that the radiation side effects start showing themselves later on from the residual effects of the radiation over time. Does that sound right? Is proton therapy really like the magic bullet or is it all pretty much the same?

I am meeting with the radiation drs later today hopefully. Just to get the sales pitch from that used car salesman.
