How about validating SPPORT via a members' poll ?

If you had prostatectomy with no or unknown lymph node invasion and then sRT you are invited to participate to this poll. No need to write your full bio. A sign and number will be enough.

1) The sign system is as follows:

A minus sign "-" signifies that 5 at least years passed since sRT and ADT ended without BCR.

A plus sign "+" signifies that before 5 years passed since sRT and ADT ended, BCR occurred.

A question mark "?" signifies that you are still short of 5 years from sRT and ADT

2) The numbering system is as follows:

One "1" for sRT without pelvic nodes and ADT

Two "2" for sRT without pelvic nodes but with ADT

Three "3" for sRT including pelvic nodes and ADT

Example:

User Murph256 wrote in another thread:

"I went through that procedure. 9 months of ADT with full pelvic SR. The procedure bought me about 22 months of undetectable PSA. According to my monogram, I should have had an average of 6 years."

If he wanted to participate he should have registered a "+3"

Sure. Put me down for a +3.

Thanks

Perhaps a trial of 1,792 men in 490 locations is a better "validation"?

From your bio I see you are N1, so no such group. Sorry.
