I have had two consultations this week. As you may remember I'm T1c, psa 2.4, gleason 3+3=6, and 2 cores out of 12, 65/75%. The two consultations were with a surgeon and medical radiation oncologist. Of course, both tried to sell me on their treatments...one did so very aggressively, one did it very gently and supportive. First, I was convinced I should just get this cut out and be done with it...hopefully never to have to worry about it again. Now I'm thinking the radiation would be easier, less evasive, less long term complications and as effective as surgery. At least the oncologist said, as did my urologist, with my stats, any treatment I choose will probably have a 95% success rate in eliminating the cancer, so choose what side effects I can live with and choose that treatment. I hope this is true. Any thoughts?
