Currently 75 yr. old – Diagnosed 7/2006 Gleason 7 (4-3) PSA 3.9 -- RP 9/2006 Stage pT2c N0 Mx
Reoccurrence 8/2010 and 5 Docs recommended Salvage Radiation – After 5 months PSA still at 0.2 – Reluctant to radiate because of history of Ulcerated Colitis - Charles Myers put me on his Growth Arrestment Program, first with Avodart then he added Bicalutamide – That worked for the past 7 years – Myers retired in November 2017. - In the past 4 months PSA went from 0.49 to 1.31 while I continued Myers’ program.
4/2018 Axumin PET/CT at PCMI in Wall, NJ using their new Digital GE MI scanner – The scan picked up metastatic disease in one lymph node 3.7 x 6.6 mm – the scan also picked up suspicious uptake in the prostate bed and distal reanastomosis site which I think is the urethra
I put radiation off for almost 8 years but think I must reconsider Salvage Radiation. One of the options I am investigating is Proton Therapy. Can anyone recommend a Radiation Oncologist in central NJ who does Proton Therapy?
