  1. My husband starts his radiation therapy on Monday 2nd Dec. his tumour is graded T3. Gleason score of 8, PSA 5.9. He is happy with his decision but i cant help feeling his cancer will come back to bite him. If he were to have the op and cancer returned he would have other treatment options but with IMRT if cancer returns surgery wouldnt be easy because of damage caused by radiation. I feel he has a choice of frying pan or fire but wish he would opt for surgery. Unfortunately its not my decision to make and im apprehensive about what lies ahead – for us both.


  2. Does he feel he made the right decision – now?? I elected for removal based on input from numerous family members and friends – Cancer in the body/get rid of it. My decision seemed like it was the right one, because the Surgical Biopsy Results came back with a higher grade cancer than the initial Biopsy showed..
