Hi, I do hope that your husbands HIFU goes very well, and I hope that you will doent your experiences on this board. I wish you all the very best.
We heard just too much controversy to be comfortable, and of course the exorbitant price (for us) was way too much.
I do have a point to share with you. Here's what you have posted:
"I don’t like it when people talk about someone without knowing both sides, this is a respected surgeon who wants to honor his Hippocratic Oath by treating men with HIFU. Posted by the wife, on April 3, 2010 - 9:27am"
"Good luck guys, stay away from Randy in Indy selling surgery, the old fashioned way to get PC. Posted by the wife, April 2, 2010 - 6:56pm"
Aren't you treating Randy in the very same manner that you accuse us of treating Suarez?
My husband and I have met Randy personally, find him to be a fine, upstanding person who was willing to share details of his experience with my husband, who had already decided on surgery, yet was trying to find the best surgeons in this area. We are very thankful to Randy for his support.
I am a registered nurse, and believe me, we do not take any medical decisions lightly, and I am the first to be skeptical of anyone and everything. I've read about 6 books in the past month on prostate cancer. I personally, if I were a man with my husband's Gleason score, would choose hormone therapy and waiting a little while to make a decision. However, this is my husband's choice and I support him fully in whatever avenue he chooses.
