Hey fellas anyone here ever had surgery to remove the prostate after failed radiation treatment?
When I was considering it after a biochemical relapse with node involvement 3 years ago, I was told by several Drs things like ''very few surgeons will attempt it, there will be horrendous side effects, your Pca has metatastized what's the point? etc,etc.''
However a new Medical Oncologist i'm under the care of said that surgical techniques have vastly improved since then and if a PSMA scan shows only a few mets, than he believes SP is a good option for me.
It makes sense to me to get rid of the bulk of the cancer. Even though it still won't be a cure,surely it will prolong my life at least in some small way.
