I have read numerous posts by guys who knew Dr. Myers when Myers was receiving treatment for PCa at the same time and by the same Doc they were. Myers is in a durable remission while there other guys are cold stone dead. Why..because Myers had the knowledge to demand and receive twice the normal radiation dose to the prostate and lymph nodes.
Now we have this Uro..because of his knowledge and "friends" in the business he was able to chart out the optimum treatment What about us "mere mortals"...we make an appointment to see some sanctimonious smuck, in a white coat, and put our life in his hands..many times to our own detriment.
It is only by being members of this great group that we can find out the best treatment. But, for most of us this is after the fact. When we first got that rising PSA and then the biopsy of PCa we were scared and just wanted the damn thing out of our bodies and were flying blind. Nobody told me it was usually a slow growing cancer and I had plenty of time to do research and educate myself. No way...I was rushed into a RP and then that worthless SRP. And when I had a BCR after SRP they wanted to rush me into ADT and put me on the path to CRPC. But, I knew enough by then to say Fuck You.
