Randy in Indy, I have lost your email address. This is the info you asked about.

I opened this topic so that others that follow might have access to it as well.

I had surgery September 17,09 and my first three PSA tests were detectable so I opted to begin IG/IMRT at only 74 days post surgery. Today I completed #33 and have only 2 to go.

The following are some of the links that I have collected that address the success rates for undergoing radiation treatment after surgery, whether it be Adjuvant or Salvage. I hope that this info helps somebody out there.
