To make the right decision about “your prostate cancer” you need to evaluate all the arrows in your quiver. There is no question that Patrick Walsh’s book is a text-book like book with all the stuff you need from a “technical” aspect. You need a radiation type book as well and boy are there a lot of “proton” advocates out there. And then, I feel you need a book by a patient who is also a doctor, a mix or blend so to speak. Don’t worry that I am biased or not, as some have suggested on the Amazon comment board, get a book on all perspectives, do your research, read, study and then make a decision peculiar to you. That is my point…who are you, what are the specifics of “your cancer” and then and only then make the decision that is right to you and your personality. No book, friend, treatment is stand alone…it is a blend of all and if nothing else that is the point my book makes for you. One other thing…it highlights the voiding consequences of all the decisions, something overlooked by doctors and patients alike in the decision-making process. Urologist’s are funny that way…we are the human plumbers my friend. Next time a friend recommends doing what he did, ask “How are voiding? Leaking? Getting up at night? Burning? Slow stream?” Put all that in your database and then decide. I don’t give a …. what you do….just do it with right information and for the right reasons for you. Good luck.
Number 2 and number 4 on Amazon.com for the subject of prostate cancer and on the same page as “the” Patrick Walsh…not to shabby for a little ole community urologist in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northeast Georgia.
